Can human error happen in the life sciences scenario, where improvements keep happening in all its areas, ranging from processes to manufacturing to technology? Although these developments are a fact, it is equally true that human error can and do happen in all settings.
In the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry, human error can result in disastrous consequence that can lead to loss of product to injury to patients. This is one of the areas of the life sciences in which human error is rather frequent. And, this occurs even in manufacturing units in which all preventive actions, such as effective compliance documentation development and training, were taken.
Interestingly, human error in itself may not be the cause of problems. It is accepted in the pharmaceutical manufacturing industry that, sometimes, rather than the root cause, i.e., concerning the product itself, the cause of adverse events may be auxiliary reasons such as lack of attention to detail or failure to follow procedure. In such cases, such companies need to take corrective actions that give greater attention to tackle these smaller aspects. Typically, these could include re-training or disciplinary action.
