TapRooT® TV–What’s it about?

Tune in to our TapRooT® Facebook or YouTube to watch the best midday lunch and learn premiering each Wednesday, or listen to the conversation on the TapRooT® podcast. We explore ways to help you with your root cause analysis and incident investigation programs. Learn to find and fix root causes and develop corrective actions that improve safety, production, maintenance, and quality.

Mark Paradies is co-developer of the TapRooT® System. He became familiar with advanced human factors technology while at the University of Illinois. During his service as an officer in Admiral Rickover’s Nuclear Navy, he had the opportunity to observe errors that operators and mechanics made, even when well-trained and equipped with good procedures. Mark’s consideration of human factor concepts is foundational to TapRooT®—including advanced human performance technology without the usual jargon—particularly to help folks such as plant personnel, engineers, and managers. With the development of TapRooT®, Mark and TapRooT® co-developer Linda Unger have changed the way the world solves problems through advanced root cause analysis, training and software, assisting in designing and improving performance improvement programs, and in investigating the root causes of accidents.
