Join Kestrel at the 30th annual EHS Seminar next week to hear A.W. Armstrong present on Using a Data-Driven Method of Accident Analysis: A Case Study of the Human Performance Reliability (HPR) Process.
June 5-8, 2017
Moody Gardens Convention Center
Kestrel Presentation: Thursday, June 8 at 8:30 a.m.
Kestrel Booth: #611
The Role of Human Error in Occupational Incidents
The concept of human error and its contribution to accidents and incidents have received considerable research attention in recent years. When an accident/incident occurs, investigation and analysis of the human error that led to the incident often reveals vulnerabilities in an organization’s management system.
This recent emphasis on human error has resulted in an expansion of knowledge related to human error and the most common factors contributing to incidents. Kestrel’s Human Performance Reliability (HPR) process helps to classify human error—with the additional step of associating the control(s) that failed to prevent the incident from occurring. This process allows organizations to identify how and where to focus resources to drive safety performance improvements.
In this presentation, A.W. describes Kestrel’s method for identifying the most frequent human errors and most problematic controls and presents a case study wherein HPR was applied to a large petroleum refining company.
