Not necessarily related, but having read several of Atul Gawande's books, I would highly recommend them. I think they all address about how to at least attempt to eliminate some errors from any workflow. (Though, I may be biased with some background in the Pharmaceutical field.)

I personally would recommend "Complications: A Surgeon's Notes on an Imperfect Science"[1] , mainly because I like that he briefly addresses how it's sometimes hard to quantify knowing that something will go wrong, and that you almost have to acquire experience/a gut instinct of when to go the extra mile.

I think his book "The Checklist Manifesto" is too long. It feels as if he didn't really have more stuff than this article.
