Basic Tenets Of Error Prevention

  1. Nobody wants to make a mistake!
  2. There are Traps of human nature that lead to most of the human factor mistakes, incidents and accidents.
  3. It is possible to learn about those Traps and how to avoid or deal with them.
  4. A critical part of this process is eliminating blame for honest mistakes.
  5. This allows an open and honest discussion of what happened and why it happened.
  6. We can then communicate this information so others can avoid falling into the same traps.
