SIT Learn

Overview

In this 2-day course, participants will learn the applications of human performance factors and human error management.
Human Factor models such as James Reason’s Swiss Cheese, SHELL and 5M/4L and effects of fatigue, stress, communications, work design, etc will be internalised and learned through case studies of accidents.

Participants will learn that safety compliance, training and work task procedures alone are not adequate to prevent human error. A system approach is necessary to better assure human performance and error management. Open Reporting and a Just Culture will also be discussed.
Task analysis and human error prediction techniques will be presented and practiced using your organisation’s actual work tasks; with the use of SHERPA (Systematic Human Error Reduction and Prediction Approach) as a major error prediction tool.

An online forum will be initiated after the workshop (for a period of time) for participants to deepen applied learning through discussion and sharing of best practices in their organisational context.
