Human Error is a Major Problem for Businesses

Human Error is a Major Problem for Businesses

There is always going to be user error in the workplace. Even the best workers make mistakes sometimes. You naturally want to reduce these occurrences as often as possible, but for the purposes of training and whatnot, you want to assume the worst: that any worker, even the most dedicated veteran, could potentially make a business-ending mistake. Thankfully, there are ways you can make sure this doesn’t happen for your business.

Here are three tips for reducing human error in the workplace.

Provide Proper Training
Surprisingly enough, if you train your employees properly, you won’t have to worry about them making mistakes; at least, not as much as you would under untrained circumstances. You should take care to properly outline all of your processes in a way that’s easy to understand, including both intensive and routine tasks, as well as having an established workflow for reporting issues or identifying security problems with spam or phishing emails.

Limit User Permissions
Not all users will need the same permissions on their devices. For example, an IT administrator might need admin permissions, but the average user won’t. The same can be said for access to specific data on your network. You should partition off certain information to only those departments that might need it so you can avoid an access issue with other employees. Basically, the fewer permissions a user has on their device or network, the less harm can come of it in the event a hacker manages to sneak their way in.

Use Your Collective Workforce to “Crowdsource” for Quality
We’re sure you’ve heard the phrase “two heads are better than one,” and you’ll be interested to hear that the same phrase can be applied to the workplace. If you have a large project that could use an extra pair of eyes, why not ask your coworkers for a quick glance? It might help putting out a project with glaring errors that you might not notice because you’ve been staring at it for a few weeks straight. You can think of this process as beta testing in a way, as you can determine potential problems with a product before it is actually released to the public. This can prevent a loss of profit from a product or service that’s not ready to be released can bring if it’s thrown out into the world too soon.

If your business wants to cut out the dangers of human error in the workplace, Symmetric Engineering Group can help. To learn more, reach out to us at (813) 749-0895.
