Error describes something that is not correct, or a mistake, such as a wrong decision or action. Failure is the lack of success—and this is a measurable output where objectives were not met.
It’s common for organizations to punish people for making mistakes—instead of blaming the system that produced the outcome. With an HFACS foundation in place, your organization has learned to accept that human error cannot be eliminated and that it should be embraced as a system product rather than an obstacle.
You are now ready to implement and promote a culture of transparency, problem solving and improvement. Leading this shift begins at the organizational level with an operational assessment, followed by procedure modernization, and progressing into an understanding of the role of culture and how it influences decisions and actions.
