First real-world applications that incorporate physical Human-Robot Interaction have been put to operation. This new trend in trying to introduce new interactive robotic devices into the market that are capable of safe acting in unstructured dynamic environments, is certainly a main driving factor of nowadays robotics. Both, research and industry believe that the close interaction of humans and robots will enable novel applications and create new markets, if not finally bring robots into our everyday life comprehensively. From the standardization side, there has been considerable effort in reflecting complex interaction into existing industrial robot standards and define new close human-robot interactions for service robotics, which are still significantly evolving. It seems that we are finally getting to the stage of enabling coexistence and interaction not only in research lab environments and in terms of roof-of-concept installations in industry, but fundamentally changing the role of robotics for humans' everyday life. However, this is a major effort and several questions and requirements regarding safety remain open and unsolved yet. In this sense, the workshop intends to bring together researchers, standardization experts, and industrialists, who are all together responsible for ensuring that robots can finally come of the research labs into all aspects of everyday life. This event shall initiate close interaction and collaboration between these communities in order to bring closer the different viewpoints, define remaining challenges in the field of safety in robotics together, and converge to a common roadmap that all can commit to in order to reach a coordinated action at some point.
