Why Should you Attend
One of the major causes for incurring quality and production losses in many industries is human error. Although it is unlikely that human error can never be totally abolished, many human performance problems could be prevented. Human errors begin at the design stage. Procedures play a vital role in human reliability. Nevertheless, it is extremely necessary to understand human behavior and the psychology of error as well as understand exactly where the instructions weaknesses are, so procedures can be human engineered, improved and/or fixed.
