This work provides insight into the scientific-ground work for the development of digital safety tools for human-robot interactions; GRIP - Guarding Robot Interaction Performance. GRIP is a digital safety management system under development for human-robot interactions (HRI) in an Industry 4.0 setting. GRIP draws knowledge from different sources to utilize practical, scientific and legal information in a single tool; Storybuilder, HRI-GRIP, and the Machine Directive. Storybuilder deals with the structured recording and analysis of occupational accidents. HRI-GRIP provides a structured ontology of relevant characteristics that affect the outcomes of HRI. The machine directive collates all legal safety requirements for machines and working safely with machines Each of the parts provides a relevant viewpoint for robot-safety and together they provide the basis for a holistic analysis of safe working with robots. With this scientific framework GRIP can operate as a 360° diagnosis tool for the safety assessment of HRI applications on the work floor.
