Error Prevention Institute’s training course provides insights into why humans make errors, how to identify the true root causes of those errors and how to eliminate them.


One example for eliminating errors is to have clearly defined roles which creates accountability. If everyone is doing everything, it’s difficult to know who is ultimately accountable for a particular task.


Most companies repeat the same human errors over and over and typically focus on major issues.


Often productivity and profitability are destroyed by hundreds of small mistakes. Learn how to analyze mistakes and eliminate them, don’t just accept them.
