keynote Session 10: The new approach to safety: Human and Organizational Performance

Human Performance (HP) is the next generation in safety and is critical for effective safety management and event analysis/learning. Human error or violations are often identified as the cause of many incidents. However, it is the beginning point rather than the endpoint in truly understanding both cause and safety performance.

This presentation will discuss:

An overview of the new view of human performance & principles

An understanding of how human error occurs

How we can start applying HP in construction

Finally, this doesn’t just apply to safety - Errors occur in production, quality, and many other areas and affect profitability every year. Human Performance is about operational excellence and is used to improve all areas of performance.
