Can You Learn to Stop Human Errors?

Can you learn to stop human errors? Consider this quote from Donald Norman:

Serious accidents are frequently blamed on “human error.” Yet careful analysis of such situations shows that the design or installation of the equipment has contributed significantly to the problems. The design team or installers did not pay sufficient attention to the needs of those who would be using the equipment, so confusion or error was almost unavoidable.

Stopping Human Error (New Course)

Do you want to achieve excellent human performance?

Would you like to understand the methods you can apply to effectively stop major accidents and incidents by “stopping” human error?

Do you need to understand what are the most effective human performance improvement techniques and which ones are counterproductive (yes, some techniques really don’t work)?

If though “Yes!” when you read any of the previous questions, this course is for YOU.

Mark Paradies, human factors expert and Board Certified Ergonomist (certificate #85) and Alex Paradies, experienced TapRooT® Instructor and Lean Transformation leader, will help you get a completely new understanding of human error.
