Approach to Human Error Reduction: Investigations, Root Cause Determination and CAPA Effectiveness

Pre Recorded

  • 90 minutes

If you work in the GMP regulated industry you not only need to address human error deviations because they are an inconvenience, you must do it because the regulation requires it. The CFR - Code of Federal Regulations Title 21 Subpart B_Organization and Personnel Sec. 211.22 talks about the “Responsibilities of quality control unit.” and it states that “(a) There shall be a quality control unit that shall have the responsibility and authority to approve or reject all components, drug product containers, closures, in-process materials, packaging material, labeling, and drug products, and the authority to review production records to assure that no errors have occurred or, if errors have occurred, that they have been fully investigated…” That being said Human Error is NOT a root cause. Human errors start at the design stage.

Join this session by expert speaker Ginette Collazo, where she will discuss human error categories, near root causes and root causes for these events. We will discuss the latest trends in human error issues in the industry.

  • Types of error

  • Human error and training: when and where

  • Human error rates and measurement

  • Trending and tracking

  • Prediction

  • CAPA effectiveness

Why You Should Attend:

We need to be able to explain human behavior. Did the human fail because process weaknesses set them for failure? Do procedures provide for all information and clearly indicate critical steps and warning or cautions associated with steps? Do systems work for manufacturing or it the other way around? These are all tough questions to ask, but most importantly answer. This training would provide tools that can be implemented and used after this event. These include practical tools.

Who Should Attend:

  • Training managers and coordinators

  • Operations

  • Manufacturing

  • Plant engineering

  • QA/QC staff

  • Process excellence/improvement professionals

  • Industrial/process engineers

  • Compliance officers

  • Regulatory/legislative affairs professionals

  • General/corporate counsel
