The Stopping Human Error course is built around the goal of helping us better understand human errors (analysis, prediction, and categorization) and why humans make them.

Through the course, you will understand why and how people work (and how to help them change their behavior). 

Importantly, 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.

“Try the proven human performance best practices in this 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.”
