The increase of product variants leads to a demand for flexibility in assembly on the one hand, but high wages result in a demand for automation on the other hand. Human-robot-collaboration, which combines the strengths of a human and a robot, is a chance to meet these requirements. The implementation of such an application asks for an extensive process regarding the evaluation of the safety of an application. In order to gain more flexibility concerning the implementation of a human-robot-collaboration application, the programming and the safety evaluation process needs to be eased. Therefore, this paper presents an approach for the integration of safety elements into a task-oriented programming system for the human-robot-collaboration.
