HUMAN ERROR

Investigation reveals that product design should consider that products can be engineered to cope with humans--rather than vice versa. The author stresses that management systems, tools, equipment and facilities should be improved so as to make less likely errors that can result in injury or damage. This can be more cost effective than programs that seek to motivate people to be safer.
