error elimination tools handbook Over the past two decades, the US commercial nuclear power generation and commercial airline industries have substantially reduced both the frequency and severity of human error and driven the incidence of significant events to nearly zero.

Simple behavioral tools have played a major role in this success.

Error Elimination Tools Handbook

  At PPI, we have taken the exact same tools used by these industries and fashioned them into a fast, simple, and easy-to-use handbook. Known within the Practicing Perfection® approach as Error Elimination Tools™, these (15) tools offer a simple behavioral system, which when properly used by the workers in your organization, virtually eliminates their potential for making mistakes on the job.   The first (7) tools are the “Fundamental Tools”, which are to be used at all times when work is being conducted. These include:
  • Questioning Attitude
  • Stop When Unsure
  • Effective Communication
  • Self-Checking
  • Task Preview
  • Job Site Review
  • Procedure Use
The (8) remaining tools are the “Situational Tools”, and are to be used when appropriate for the situation. These include:
  • Pre-Job Brief
  • Placekeeping
  • Turnover
  • Independent Verification
  • Peer Checking
  • Peer Coaching
  • Flagging
  • Post-Job Review
These tools are fundamental to the Practicing Perfection® approach to human error reduction. We highly recommend that every member of your team has (and uses) their own copy of the handbook. The Error Elimination Tools™ handbooks are sized and shaped to make it easy for workers to keep them handy on the job. They are printed on tear-proof / waterproof material for durability on the job. There is a space inside the back cover for each worker to paste a copy of their work team Code of Honor™.
