Organizations must anticipate and rapidly respond to legislation, industry regulations and public interest groups on issues of health, safety, security and the environment. Instead of isolated improvement initiatives or responsive reactions to specific events, your organization needs an enduring error-prevention culture (EPC) -- a culture of people who know the correct actions to take, have the skills and systems needed to perform them and are rewarded or recognized for getting them done. Building an EPC begins by identifying risks to people, assets, processes and facilities and making informed decisions on the methods to alleviate risks using the five factors in the EPC model. The five-part EPC model is both scalable and modular, which helps in leveraging the good practices already in place while addressing areas that need to change. The parts or the model are: 1. performance management, 2. system alignment, 3. technical excellence, 4. standardization, and 5. issue resolution skills.
