People are now coming round to the fact that "human error", "errors of judgement", "accidents" and "mistakes" are all mainly as a result of bad decisions.
"Human error" or bad decisions within the US Healthcare Sector accounts for 251,000 deaths per year.
This is the third biggest killer in the US after heart disease and cancer.
There were 621,000 injuries to workers in the UK in 2015/2016.
Almost all these workers had received training and instruction on the work activity that they were injured in.
STAARS Scotland feels the current approach in classifying bad decisions as "human error" is not resulting in the reduction of these errors to a satisfactory level and if we continue to take this approach we will never really address the situation.
Human errors are caused by bad decisions.
STAARS' goal is to help people make better decisions to reduce human error, reduce injuries and reduce financial losses to companies.
