Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

The human element is the most flexible and adaptable part of a company’s management system, but it is also the most vulnerable to influences that can adversely affect its performance. With the majority of accidents resulting from less than optimum human performance, there has been a tendency to label them as human error. However, the term “human error” is of little help in safety management. How do you fix human error? Although it may indicate where in the system the breakdown occurred, it provides no guidance as to why it occurred. An error attributed to humans may have been design-induced, or stimulated by inadequate equipment or training, badly designed procedures, or a poor layout of checklists or manuals. Presented by Andrew Dingee.
