Stop Re_______ Corrective Actions

Make Your Corrective Actions Effective

I’ve seen a lot of “re” corrective actions …



Re-place a part

Re-mind people about rules

Re-qualify (after you disqualify)

Re-write the procedure

Think about this …

If it didn’t work the first time, why will it work this time?

Instead of using a “re”, why not fix the problem? What caused the first training, emphasizing, part, rule, qualification, or procedure to fail?

Consider a more effective Safeguard.

Remove the Hazard or remove the Target.

Then you might not have REpeat incidents.
