    Unclear and Present Danger: Situation Awareness at Every Level

    85% of Human Error accidents may be attributed to the lack of Situation Awareness.

    Situation Awareness is often referred to as "knowing what is going on around you". Professor Rhona Flin identifies the stages of situation awareness. An analysis of 8 case studies shows how a lack of situation awareness led to loss, injury and death.

    And a large proportion of errors attributed to workers actually stem from errors in their situation awareness.

    For workers and managers engaged in safety and quality critical tasks, developing a high level of situation awareness is a necessity.

    Situation Awareness training is increasingly being used to improve practices in safety, risk management, quality and environment.

    The program features world recognised expert on Situation Awareness, Professor Rhona Flin of the University of Aberdeen (co-author of Safety at the Sharp End). The case studies illustrating lack of Situation Awareness include real examples from a range of industries including defence, healthcare, police, rail transport, manufacturing and chemicals and explosives.

    • Apply situation awareness to their workplace to reduce human error in safety and quality critical tasks.
