Description

Human error is an undesirable aspect of everyday life. It is often excused
on the basis that mistakes are just part of the everyday learning process.
Simply put, people make mistakes, to err is human, and people are not
perfect, except possibly you. In general, it is to be expected. Human error
may become manifest in the form of human behavior or conduct that can
be categorized as undesirable, unacceptable, careless, inattentive, forgetful,
reckless, harmful, a miscommunication, human performance that is extreme
in variability or beyond the limits of that expected, or an inappropriate form
of risk-taking behavior. An error may be harmless, it may be detectable and
correctable, it may have only nuisance value, or it may serve to predict future
problems. It is certainly important if human error is a cause of 50 to 90% of
all accidents, as is often concluded.
