Evaluating and designing procedures in safety critical environments: a framework and taxonomy based on a critical review and synthesis
TLDR
A framework and taxonomy for understanding procedure following has been developed that enables researchers to focus on the outcome of following procedures, not simply on compliance and non-compliance.
Developing a Novel Operator Performance Measure for Procedural Tasks Based on Safety-II Perspective
This paper proposes a novel framework to evaluate procedural task performance from a Safety-II perspective. While deviations from procedural steps have been a major focus of Safety-I approach, the
Can proceduralization support coping with the unexpected
Operations of safety critical industries unquestionably require a diversity of technical and organizational control measures to increase stability and predictability of the complex sociotechnical
Training to safety rules use. Some reflections on a case study
An Examination of the Changing Nature of Procedure Use and Adherence As Expertise Is Developed Over Time in a Virtual Reality Environment
TLDR
This initial pilot study will lay a foundation on which to build a paradigm or analogue whereby procedures can be changed to increase actual use in experienced and expert workers to help prevent errors such as lapses and slips typically associated with automaticity.
