Human Error by James Reason

leave a comment »

I just received the book Human Error by James Reason, which focuses on the understanding of human error mechanisms. It is in its 17th printing, 1990-2006. If you have not read this book, leave this webpage immediately, go to amazon and order it…now…do it. Then come back here.
Any time you read about latent and active error, you are reading about the works of Reason and Rasmussen, and about what happens when theory meets practice.
Here’s a Personal Perspective ppt presented at a Human Factors seminar in Helsinki 2006. Enjoy.
