Achieving a performing Human Factors & Error Management (HF&EM) System
The Baines Simmons SMARRT MAP™ has been developed to assist organisations understand, build and power up their safety management system for performance. The HF&EM Management System enables an organisation to optimise human performance in the workplace. Based on a comprehensive understanding of human factors principles, it should manage an organisation’s ability to identify error-promoting conditions and proactively manage human error to enhance organisational safety performance.
A proactive HF&EM System gives an organisation the ability not only to reduce and contain error, but also to manage these activities so that they continue to work effectively, providing enduring organisational learning and an appropriate level of safety protection.
Through a structured approach of progressive management system elements that include: Reporting, Investigation, Intervention, Feedback & Promotion and Continuous Improvement, performance can be evaluated and monitored. Collectively, these elements should reduce, and wherever possible, remove performance-influencing factors which can have a detrimental and undesirable effect on human safety performance. A performing HF&EM System proactively responds to identified risks and actively seeks to integrate HF&EM across Design, Manufacture, Operations and Maintenance.
