Human Factors (HF) Errors and Design
14 April 2021, 19:00 – 20:00
When things go wrong in complex systems – they are often attributed to Human Error. Labelling something as Human Error feels appealing – we now know what has happened. But really this label is only the start of the story. In this Webinar, we will break down what we know about Human Error, why it is so difficult to define, and why it can be hard to apply to accident events or design issues. We will then discuss some practical tips about effectively investigating human error, learning from it, and ultimately mitigating it in system design. With the hope to get you thinking about what error is, why it happens, and go away with tips about how to work with it.
