Human Error Reduction (HER) Training

This is provided in the form of a one-day seminar. 

Most human error is the result of predictable patterns of human behaviour.  You will learn a scientific and proven method for managing and reducing the incidence of human error in your operations.  This one-day seminar for leaders will provide an understanding of how document and work design can increase the instance of human error in the workplace.

You will gain powerful insights into why human errors occur and how you and your management team can reduce these errors and their resulting impact on your production, quality, safety and costs.
