Exploring the costs of errors

80% of the incidents occurring in an organisation are attributable, directly or indirectly, to human error.


In most cases, human error incidents lead to, at least, substantial economic costs; in addition, they can have a negative impact on health, quality and production output.


ESM and Treelogic have come together to create HumanScan: a fundamental tool for the efficient management of risks and hazards related to human intervention in the operations. It generates a real-time risk map and facilitates decision-making, thereby optimising overall security and strengthening system reliability.


Recognising and analysing human factors is important for safety since they may be the cause of serious human errors at the physical, social and cognitive levels of behaviour involved in decision-making (A.M.Gadomski).
