Human Error – James Reason

To be able to understand what impacts your organisation’s safety performance, you must understand the human element of your system.
This book is one of the standard works on Human Error. Must-read for any safety professional. It can be a bit dry at points, and is more of a reference work rather than a riveting read.

A good introduction to the subject, although Sidney Dekker might be more up to date.




A good reference work on the types of Human Error and introduction to the subject.
Can be a bit theoretical and dry but has a very good bibliography.You will probably find that you dip in and out of this book, not really stuff you will read in one sitting.

All in all a good starting point in the subject of Human Error.
