What is HESSD?

The Human Error, Safety and Systems Development Workshop (HESSD) is a workshop space focused on the specific exploration of human error as it occurs in risky operations including, but not limited to, aviation operations. The inaugural HESSD was held in Glasgow in 1998, and was followed by workshops in Seattle (1999), Liege (2000) and Linköping (2001).

It is important that industry and research continue to work together on understanding the interaction of static and dynamic elements of human error as they occur in increasingly complex and risky operations, eg. aviation, ocean oil drilling, underground mining, fire and explosion management, chemical hazards and so on. The HESSD workshops provide a dedicated space for the advancement of information across sectors for the benefit of all.
