Are All Human Performance Tools Created Equal?(Developing a Custom Plan): A TapRooT® TV Video Premiere

Are All Human Performance Tools Created Equal?

The simple answer is no! Here’s why, and why you will want to develop a custom plan for your company:

  • 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 any of the above questions received a “Yes!” for an answer, you should attend the 2-Day TapRooT® Stopping Human Error Course.

Watch Alex Paradies and Emily Pritt as they discuss this topic

TapRooT® TV premieres on Wednesdays at noon, on Facebook and YouTube

The 2-day Stopping Human Error course will cover solutions to assist attendees in their quest to minimize errors and resulting impact in their own facilities. The tools that will be discussed can be used in conjunction with your TapRooT® findings and can be incorporated as corrective actions as determined by your root cause analysis findings.

Develop your custom plan: TapRooT® Stopping Human Error Course

Mark Paradies, human factors expert and Board Certified Ergonomist (certificate #85) and Alex Paradies, experienced TapRooT® Instructor and Lean Transformation leader, will help you understand:

  • The causes of human error
  • Human factors design best practices
  • Methods to find error likely situations
  • Techniques to help supervisors and workers prevent human errors

You will leave this course with a clear understanding of methods to improve human performance and a custom plan to apply those methods at your company to achieve great gains in safety, quality, or operational and maintenance performance (all of which depend on human performance).
