Precision Execution Training – “Closing the Risk Perception Gap”

In today’s world of high-risk work, high work tempo and resource constraints often lead to variability in task demands, resource allocation constraints, and put a strain on workers such that they must adapt in ways the organization did not anticipate. This variability in the form of workarounds and human error manifest itself in individual and system accidents. To counter this variability, organizations must develop the capacity to identify and mitigate for error and create consistent work processes that produce positive control when work involves transfers of energy, movement of matter, or transmission of critical information.

Our Precision Execution™ model and methods, provide a balanced approach that recognizes failure paths and identifies who must do what, when failure occurs, and creates clarity about what must absolutely go right to be successful. This course is designed to create a paradigm shift in thinking about risk management, risk perception, hazards, and hazard recognition to achieve your company’s desired safety goals. Your organization will develop an understanding of how to leverage these principles and practices to improve your overall efficiency and quality while simultaneously reducing the cost of human error when high-risk work is performed.

This course has also been designed to enhance your organization’s work planning, preparation (pre-work discussions such as huddles, tailboards, pre-job briefings, etc.), and work execution activities by helping your work planners and supervisors clearly define what must be accomplished with precision and what is to be avoided during high-risk work activities including how to build in the capacity to “fail safely”.

Your Front-line workers will also benefit from this course by having an enhanced understanding about: (1) what absolutely must go right (while anticipating potential problems), (2) what to pay attention to (actions and asset critical parameters to monitor), and (3) what to do before they start their work to ensure success. Front-line workers will also have the added benefit of an increased understanding when it is essential to utilize error-reduction techniques during high-risk work to be deliberately certain that your company’s assets are protected from harm despite production pressures.

Understanding Precision Execution™ principles and practices will ultimately reshape not only how you think about your work activities, but also how best to approach them to reduce accidents and undesirable events. Knowing and applying these principles and practices will help optimize your organization’s safety improvement efforts through a new view of risk management and human reliability.
