Maintenance Error: failing to perform a task or performing it incorrectly during routine testing, checking, servicing or breakdown repair. Result - the equipment malfunctions or the error results in an incident causing damage to plant or personnel.
Human errors and violations in servicing and repair tasks have many of the same root causes as errors in other types of task. However, with maintenance, a fault introduced into the system by human error today might have no effect for several months and then cause a sudden unexpected hazardous breakdown or incident.
