This 45 min course explores human error in the workplace. It looks at the types of errors we make, common ‘error traps’ that fall under four categories; Person, Equipment, Task and Environment (PETE), and the Human Performance (HuP) tools we can use to mitigate error traps that can’t be removed. During this course we’ll highlight the type of human errors that can occur, explore the traps that most of us fall into, and look at how we can manage situations to reduce error in the future.

By increasing awareness of when and where we are more likely to make mistakes, we can raise standards and reduce the opportunity for error in the workplace. The course combines psychological theory and exercises with practical tips on how to manage error. This course is perfect for any company looking to raise operating, quality and behavioural standards.

When you finish the course, you will be asked to demonstrate your understanding of some of the key points by completing a short assessment.
