Situations and systems are easier to change than the human condition - particularly when people are well-trained and well-motivated, as they usually are in maintenance organisations. This is a down-to-earth practitioner¿s guide to managing maintenance error, written in Dr. Reason¿s highly readable style. It deals with human risks generally and the special human performance problems arising in maintenance, as well as providing an engineer¿s guide for their understanding and the solution. After reviewing the types of error and violation and the conditions that provoke them, the author sets out the broader picture, illustrated by examples of three system failures. Central to the book is a comprehensive review of error management, followed by chapters on:- managing person, the task and the team; - the workplace and the organization; - creating a safe culture; It is then rounded off and brought together, in such a way as to be readily applicable for those who can make it work, to achieve a greater and more consistent level of safety in maintenance activities. The readership will include maintenance engineering staff and safety officers and all those in responsible roles in critical and systems-reliant environments, including transportation, nuclear and conventional power, extractive and other chemical processing and manufacturing industries and medicine.

Of the billions of dollars spent on plant management and operation annually, an estimated 80% of the total amount is spent to rectify the chronic failure of systems, machines, and humans. Although information on human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance is scattered throughout journals and proceedings, no single resource covers all of these topics within a maintenance safety framework. Consulting different and diverse sources can not only make finding information laborious and time consuming, but also cause delays on the job. Human Reliability, Error, and Human Factors in Engineering Maintenance with Reference to Aviation and Power Generation provides engineers a tool for meeting the increasing problem of human error. Drawing on a myriad of sources, the book provides quick and easy access to information that can then be immediately applied to actual problems in the field. It includes examples and their solutions to illustrate engineering safety management at work and gives readers a view of the intensity of developments in the area. The author’s clear, concise, user-friendly style breaks the information down into understandable and applicable concepts. This book not only provides up-to-date coverage of the on-going efforts in human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance, but also covers useful developments in the general areas of human factors, reliability, and error. This information can then be translated into increased maintenance safety that has a positive impact on the bottom line.

Undetected human error in aircraft maintenance creates a latent error condition that can contribute to undesirable outcomes. Individual Latent Error Detection (I-LED) acts as an additional system safety control that helps an engineer recall past errors through environmental cues. This book addresses a gap in the human factors research and current safety strategies by exploring the nature and extent of I-LED and its benefit to safety resilience. The book will describe the I-LED concept using a systems perspective and propose practical interventions to be integrated within existing safety systems as an additional control to enhance resilience against human performance variability.

Maximizing reader insights into a new movement toward leadership approaches that are collaborated and shared, and which views Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) and performance excellence within the wider examination of leadership relationships and practices, this book argues that these relationships and processes are so central to the establishment of OSH functioning that studying them warrants a broad, cross-disciplinary, multiple method analysis. Exploring the complexity of leadership by the impact that contexts (e.g., national and organizational culture) may have on leaders, this book discusses the related literature, then moves forward to show how a more comprehensive practical approach to Occupational Safety and Health and performance excellence can function on levels pertaining to events, individuals, groups, and organizations. This book proposes that greater clarity in understanding leadership in Occupational Safety and Health and performance excellence can be developed from addressing two fundamental issues. Firstly, how do subunit inputs and processes combine to produce unit-level outcomes and how does leadership affect this process? Secondly, how do the leaders influence the way that individual-level inputs are combined to produce organizational outputs. In these issues, the alternative methodologies that allow precise measurement of organizational outputs in OSH and performance excellence are reviewed. To help readers navigate through the best practices, each chapter contains Question Guidelines, Exercises and Case studies which illustrate the concepts discussed and which serves to highlight the key evidence demonstrating that collaborative leadership can positively affect individual, group, and organizational level outcomes, including organizational OSH and performance excellence.

Human reliability, error, and human factors in the area of power generation have been receiving increasing attention in recent years. Each year billions of dollars are spent in the area of power generation to design, construct/manufacture, operate, and maintain various types of power systems around the globe, and such systems often fail due to human error. This book compiles various recent results and data into one volume, and eliminates the need to consult many diverse sources to obtain vital information. It enables potential readers to delve deeper into a specific area, providing the source of most of the material presented in references at the end of each chapter. Examples along with solutions are also provided at appropriate places, and there are numerous problems for testing the reader’s comprehension. Chapters cover a broad range of topics, including general methods for performing human reliability and error analysis in power plants, specific human reliability analysis methods for nuclear power plants, human factors in control systems, and human error in power plant maintenance. They are written in such a manner that the potential reader requires no previous knowledge to understand their contents. “Human Reliability, Error, and Human Factors in Power Generation” will prove useful to many individuals, including engineering professionals working in the power generation industry, researchers, instructors, and undergraduate and graduate students in the field of power engineering.
