Human error is known to be the primary cause of quality and production losses in many industries. Although it is unlikely that human error will ever be eliminated, many human performance problems can be prevented. Human errors start at the design stage and usually factors associated to cognitive load are ignored. In science, cognition is the mental processing that includes the attention of working memory,comprehending and producing language, calculating, reasoning, problem solving, and decision making.This course evaluates cognitive issues that may be the cause of these failures.
This training would provide tools that can be implemented and used after this event. These include practical tools. We will discuss human error categories, near root causes and root causes for these events. We will discuss latest trends in human error issues in the industry
Nine years ago, Dr. Collazo established Human Error Solutions (HES), a Florida based boutique consulting firm, where she has been able to position herself as one of the few Human Error Reduction Experts in the world. HES, led by Dr. Collazo, developed a unique methodology for human error investigations, cause determination, CA-PA development and effectiveness that has been implemented and proven amongst different industries globally. This scientific method has been applied in critical quality situations and workplace accidents.
Ginette Collazo, Ph. D. is the author of the book Human Error: Root Cause Determination Model, published in 2008. She is also a speaker at significant events like Interphex, FDAnews Annual Conference, Global Conference on Process Safety, International Conference on Applied Human Factors and Ergonomics, and of course, Pharmaceutical Industry Association. FDAnews has called her a “veteran of helping drug, biologic and device firms reduce manufacturing errors,” and the Caribbean Business describes her as “ the missing link in modern business.” Today her Error Reduction System has been implemented in all types of industries worldwide.
