Reduce Human Error by Conducting an Efficient Root Cause Analysis

Although human error is all around us, in an organization it is usually not actually the root cause of problems. It is instead only one of multiple causes that must be dealt with. Unfortunately, organizations try to change human behavior rather than the system within which the individual is working, then are frustrated when problems recur. However, industries can significantly reduce the rate of human error by focusing on business process design while better considering human factors.

Human error should never be the stopping point when conducting a root cause analysis, but should instead simply be a point at which the problem is then redefined. This session with expert speaker Duke Okes will help you learn to look in more detail at the process being carried out and the interaction between the individual and other factors in their environment to yield vital information that can help identify the actual root cause. A key point is that it is much easier to change the design of a process than it is to change human behavior.

Session Highlights

  • Why human error is almost never the root cause
  • Typical system causes of human error
  • Human attributes that can cause errors
  • How to differentiate between system and individual causes

  • How "Just Culture" can help prevent inappropriate responses to human errors

Who should attend?

  • Quality managers/engineers
  • Safety coordinators
  • Team leaders or other personnel involved in conducting investigations into the cause of problems such as quality, safety, environmental, equipment, or other process failures.
