WORKSHOP OVERVIEW   Advances in technology have helped organizations significantly improve the quality of products and processes, but unfortunately improvements in human design are not so easily achieved.  The result is that human error is now estimated to be a significant contributor in 80% of failures.  This 1/2-day workshop is designed to help participants view human error as a result of the interactions between people and the environment in which they work.  Please join us to discover:

·       How to view human activity as a process that can be diagnosed

·       Sources and types of errors within that process

·       Common typologies for diagnosing human error

·       Human error prediction

·       The importance of product/process design guidelines

·       Typical prevention options and examples

·       Why “level of solution” is an important consideration

·       A methodology for applying mistake proofing techniques

The workshop will cover both cognitive and physical causes of human error applicable to both manufacturing and office environments.
