Human Factors in Manufacturing Incidents.
Human errors are contributing factors in many process-safety and production incidents. But surprisingly the causes for incidents are more often related to failures in procedures or methods within an organization than to the human element.
In many process-safety and production related workplace incidents, human errors count as prevalent contributing factors. But Human error, is surprisingly not considered to be a frequently viable root cause. More often the cause should be assigned as a weakness in the companies’ management systems.
In this white paper, Clint W. Jeffus (previously BASF, now Director of Operations at Voovio) explores:
- Causes for incidents through human errors
- Analysis of major root cause investigation methodologies employed by many in the manufacturing industry
- Approaches to ensure the most impactful learning methods in manufacturing operations
….and much more. Download the white paper today to see how this might apply to your plant reduce incidents caused by human errors.
