In Error-Proofing Humans, Hylenski explores the history of human factors across various industries, such as aviation and engineering, and provides a comprehensive look into their different types, including complacency, lack of knowledge, distraction, repetition, etc. Learn to distinguish between the personal and system approaches to human error. Avoid work fatigue and find ways to manage stress and anxiety.
