Human Error Management Systems
Cortexia's Human Error Management Systems (HEMS) create a systemic approach for your business to manage human risk and error. By helping you identify, monitor and control risk using high-reliability best practice, Cortexia's HEMS unleash the potential of your operations to deliver big, bottom-line improvements. Our HEMS approach is based on Ultra-Resilience and centres on:
- Building a Just Culture to enhance operational error reporting (identifying your realistic operational risk)
- Applying contributing factors to investigations and analysis in order to identify systemic issues that are likely impacting performance across individuals (improved targeting of system interventions)
- Training employees in the field-craft of Threat & Error Management in order to reduce the likelihood of human error
HEMS are becoming increasingly popular within the banking and motorsport industries where human error and certain human factors can have detrimental consequences.
Led by Dr. Damien Armenis, Cortexia can take the latest human error, risk and cognition research, and apply it to your tailor designed HEMS for your requirements. The resulting HEMS allows you to monitor, assess and mitigate risk within your operations and service.
We are confident that we can enhance your business performance, minimise risk, and streamline operations. If you would like to improve your results and believe we can help, please contact us.
“Cortexia delivered a series of decision making workshops for some of our brokers, traders and analysts, along with a Human Error Management System. They were able to concisely break through the science and jargon to provide our staff with pragmatic tools they can apply every day at the trading desk to minimise human error. Cortexia’s error management system is now allowing our Risk team to better monitor and assess our human risk. Both subjective feedback from the staff and objective measurable financial performance have been very favorable. We will be using Cortexia again.”Tom Simmons – Vice President
