Sidney Dekker, professor and well-known publicist in the field of Human Factors and safety, and Robert Jan de Boer, lecturer at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences will show you the way to a proactive approach to safety that simultaneously increases the performance of your organization. We show you in ten steps how you can prevent many accidents and incidents, despite the complexity of today's practice. We show you how human errors are inherent in the variation of the daily routine and how safety appears as a result of the interaction between people and in connection with technology in the world today. This seminar is given in Dutch and is particularly aimed at managers and board members in safety-sensitive industries such as health care, transport, defense, chemistry and nuclearenergy. Supervisors and representatives of the government are also invited to participate. Please click here for more information.
