In this episode of Voices in Validation we are talking about Human Error in life science manufacturing. Human Error is a major cause of GMP violations and deviations in pharmaceutical manufacturing - accounting for nearly 30% of quality defects. Efforts to investigate root causes are typically incomplete or poorly performed. Most regulatory authorities no longer accept human error as a justifiable cause of errors, making it necessary, now more than ever, to ensure proper systems are in place, employees are thoroughly trained, procedures are being followed and equipment is not deficient in any way to reduce or prevent human error. Dr. Willis Thomas helps us better understand some of the intricacies of the topic.
