The Field Guide to Understanding Human Error

The old "Bad Apple Theory" of human error promotes the idea that a system is basically safe, with the exception of a few unreliable people. Breaking new ground beyond its successful predecessor, The Field Guide to Understanding Human Error guides you through the traps and misconceptions of the old view.

When faced with a human error problem, you may be tempted to ask 'Why didn't they watch out better? How could they not have noticed?'. You think you can solve your human error problem by telling people to be more careful, by reprimanding the miscreants, by issuing a new rule or procedure. These are all expressions of 'The Bad Apple Theory', where you believe your system is basically safe if it were not for those few unreliable people in it.

This old view of human error is increasingly outdated and will lead you nowhere.The new view, in contrast, understands that a human error problem is actually an organizational problem. Finding a 'human error' by any other name, or by any other human, is only the beginning of your journey, not a convenient conclusion. The new view recognizes that systems are inherent trade-offs between safety and other pressures (for example: production). People need to create safety through practice, at all levels of an organization.

Breaking new ground beyond its successful predecessor, The Field Guide to Understanding Human Error guides you through the traps and misconceptions of the old view. It explains how to avoid the hindsight bias, to zoom out from the people closest in time and place to the mishap, and resist the temptation of counterfactual reasoning and judgmental language. But it also helps you look forward. It suggests how to apply the new view in building your safety department, handling questions about accountability, and constructing meaningful countermeasures. It even helps you in getting your organization to adopt the new view and improve its learning from failure.So if you are faced by a human error problem, abandon the fallacy of a quick fix!

Removing Obstacles to Safety
Published by Performance Management Publications ISBN: 0937100072
Health & Safety Practices & Procedures Manual - photos - picturesThis manual clearly explains a scientifically-based formula for removing barriers to safe practices behaviour, identifying and eliminating unsafe or at-risk actions and promoting safe habits at work or at home. Creating and maintaining a competitive food-producer, wholesaler, retail or consultancy business that keeps safety as a priority is tough. Any workplace HR organisation can create excellent practices, procedures and results for safer work environments, but human behaviour must be a key component of the safety team members of any successful health and safety enterprise.

Removing Obstacles to Safety: A Behavior-Based Approach can provide a quick, yet detailed, overview relevant to every member of any workforce, behavior-based safety (BBS) presents solutions to ergonomic, production, and lone-worker issues at every level. Though targeting safety at work, this book also serves as a handy and easy-to-understand guide that reveals how to use BBS anywhere at anytime - accidents don't just happen on the job. In fact, for many, taking this system home has demonstrated the value of positive steps that even kids can use to develop safe habits.

Case studies, chapter summaries, and a Q & A section kept the 1st edition in demand, but this revised edition offers even more: additional chapters further defining managerial, supervisory and frontline roles, leadership strategies, and industry-specific examples of applying this proven method to, and beyond, safety initiatives.
