Predictors of Procedural Deviation: Comparisons between What Workers Say and What They Do
Speaker: S. Camille Peres, Assistant Professor, Texas A&M University
Well-written procedures can be an integral part of safe operation, managing risks, and continuous improvement in the high-risk settings of process industries. Although the importance of procedures is recognized by all industries in general, significant incidents have occurred in past due to procedural breakdown. This presentation will share results from a series of studies looking to identify and compare elements predictive of both reported and observed deviations from standardized operating procedures. Potential applications of these findings will also be shared.
