Human error is a significant source of risk within any organization. Management uses a variety of operational controls and barriers, including policies, procedures, work instructions, employee selection and training, auditing, etc., to reduce the likelihood of human error. Accidents occur when there is a failure in one or more of these controls and/or barriers.

Many companies are working to reduce their incident rates by integrating a more detailed analysis of human factors into their incident investigation procedures. In doing so, companies can identify weaknesses in their operational controls at a specific job site, within an operating region, and across the organization.
