Operational Risk Identification Overview
Understanding the risks present in any operation should serve as the starting point for preventing adverse safety events. Reviewing operational data and safety event reporting systems provides actionable insight into the current and emerging risks in a system.
Fort Hill Group has extensive experience in all aspects of identifying human performance risks including developing human and organizational performance taxonomies, developing and testing safety event reporting systems, identification of errors and contributing causal factors. Our approach emphasizes the use of prominent error pathways and associations between contextual factors and errors to develop mitigation strategies that will have the greatest positive impact on system safety.
