Do You Need a Human Performance Improvement Plan?

Human Performance Improvement Track Speaker

Summit Human Performance Track + The Stopping Human Error Course

The Human Performance Track at the 2022 Global TapRooT® Summit (May 4-6) is designed to help you learn best practices and new information about improving human performance. When you pair this track with the pre-Summit Course – Stopping Human Error (May 2-3) – you have a powerful one-two punch to help you develop a human performance improvement plan to prevent the main cause of major accidents: HUMAN ERROR.

After the Stopping Human Error Course and the Human Performance Track at the 2022 Global TapRooT® Summit, you will have a plan to develop your own, custom human performance improvement program at your company.

Here is Mark Paradies talking about creating a human performance improvement program…

The next Stopping Human Error Course is on May 2-3, 2022, in Knoxville, TN.

Human Performance Track Topics & Speakers

These are topics you need to learn about to improve human performance.

You don’t want to miss the knowledge, best practices, and discussions that will occur in these sessions.

But what if you already know about one of the topics above? You can pick a session from one of the six other tracks:

  1. Safety & Risk Management Best Practices
  2. Incident Investigation & RCA Best Practices
  3. Becoming a Better Certified TapRooT® Instructor
  4. Operational Excellence and Asset Reliability Best Practices
  5. Compliance Best Practices
  6. Work/Life Ballance

This makes it easy to mix and match sessions to make your own custom track.

Which of these Keynote Speakers will be the most applicable to the Human Performance Track? The accident that Ken Futch will describe? The failure of senior leadership that Vice Admiral Joseph Aucoin will present? The discussion of senior leadership’s needs from root cause analyses? Or the motivation provided by Inky and Kirstie? You will have to decide after you see all five presentations.
