Deadly Distractions

In the Error Prevention training we learn that the traps of human nature often lead to a loss of situational awareness that ultimately results in the incident, accident or failure.

This was the case with the derailment of an Amtrak train in Philadelphia in May 2015. The NTSB determined that the engineer’s loss of situational awareness led to the train entering a curve at over twice the speed limit.
