Identifying Human Error Likely Situations – What Does “Good” Look Like? – Episode 3
Since 2008, Procedure Solutions Management, LLC, has taught over
9,000 (correction over 10,000) students on a variety of procedure-related topics. When we teach our classes there are 5 main principles that we want to convey:
- Level of Detail – What to do, OR how to do it.
- Identify Common Error Likely Situations – What does “Good” look like?
- General Technical Writing Guidelines – Writing Fundamentals
- Organizing and Sequencing of Steps
- Utilizing Templates or Human-Factored Writing Tools
This is part 3 of a 4-part “What Does “Good” Look Like” series that will focus on the second principle, Identifying (and Eliminating) Human Error Likely Situations. It will cover the following:
- Inconsistent Place-keeping Methods
- Precautions, Notes, Cautions, and Warnings Without Value
- Actions or Implied Actions in Precautions, Notes, Cautions, and Warnings
- Unrelated Actions in the Same Step
We had fun putting these videos together and hope you will enjoy them. Please remember that this is only a very small part of a comprehensive training curriculum that was designed to help eliminate human performance challenges in procedures.
