5.0 out of 5 stars Human Error Theory
This is a wonderful book, both academic, but not too far into the linguistics of psychology to lose the ordinary reader. It explains Reason's Human Error Theory, to enable the reader to fully understand how mistakes can occur, and gives a decision tree to illustrate how the error theory can be used within a Just Culture.

3.0 out of 5 stars Managing Maintenance Error: A Practical Guide
Not very informative. The "practical guide" is not what I was expecting as guide. Should be more practical for to be understandable by simple people. I do the course of Human Factors for Maintenance and I was expecting to find useful information for the presentations.

This review is from: Managing Maintenance Error: A Practical Guide (Paperback)
This is a wonderful book, both academic, but not too far into the linguistics of psychology to lose the ordinary reader. It explains Reason's Human Error Theory, to enable the reader to fully understand how mistakes can occur, and gives a decision tree to illustrate how the error theory can be used within a Just Culture. There have been criticisms made of the decision tree, but it does work well, giving a clear platform for professionals who deal with error.
The book also looks at risk, and ways that can be mitigated within an organisation - and is a must for those who want to ensure that their organisation isn't featured in the next "disaster" story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book I have read this year and worth it!, 25 Oct. 2009

This review is from: Managing Maintenance Error: A Practical Guide (Paperback)
If you work in a hazardous industry then this is the book for you.
It tells you why errors occur and gives you strategies for managing them so that they do not realise their potential.
It is written in an easy to read, clear, concise manner.
This is an excellent book well worth reading. If you are a manager, need maintenance in your area or arrange maintenance then this book will become your bible.

This review is from: Managing Maintenance Error: A Practical Guide (Paperback)
Although based around aircraft maintenance,the approach to human error can be transferred across to other maintenance disciplines.Overall a very good starter book towards understanding why maintainers can make mistakes or errors.
