Strategies in Human Error Reduction

  January 10, 2018  
CfPA-The Center for Professional Advancement, Amsterdam, The Netherlands
7-8 May 2018

Who Should Attend?
This 2 day highly interactive workshop is designed for all industries and job functions but is especially suited for Medical Device, Pharmaceutical and other Life Science professionals who are responsible for implementing and conducting deviation and human error reduction programs. This includes, but is not limited to, professionals in Internal and Supplier Quality, Supply Chain Management, Technical Support, and Procurement.

You will gain valuable, practical knowledge on why people make mistakes, how to analyze mistakes to get to the real cause of the problem rather perceived causes, and what can be done to minimize future errors by focusing on simple, easily implemented mistake proofing concepts.

Course Description
This 2 day highly interactive workshop provides significant insight into how our brains work, how we learn, why we make mistakes, and what can be done to minimize future errors. This course will prepare participants to effectively analyze errors and significantly reduce future mistakes by using the proven Six Sigma DMAIC (Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, and Control) methodology and practical case studies. Participants will gain a better understanding of why the errors were made based on focusing on potential rather than the perceived causes.

They will also be able to implement effective mistake proofing prevention methods in training, procedures, process flow, process documentation, and work environments to significantly reduce future mistakes.
