It’s a very important dynamic duo—the newest TapRooT® Root Cause Analysis book and training course, Stopping Human Error.

We would all love to know how to magically stop human error, wouldn’t we? System Improvements President Mark Paradies, author of the Stopping Human Error book, observes, “Try the proven human performance best practices in this TapRooT® book. They are based on human factors research, proven in the field. Can we stop all human errors? The answer is no. But you can stop important errors, make other errors less likely and easy to catch, and add defense in depth to stop major accidents.

“At the end of this book, you will have the knowledge you need to develop a custom program to improve human performance in your organization and stop many important human errors. What can this save your company? Billions. It can prevent fatalities, stop quality issues, improve equipment reliability, and reduce the chance of regulatory fines. That means this book is well worth your time to read.”
