The Energy Workforce HSE Committee is calling for Member Company employees to submit resources on human performance principles and its implementation within the energy services and technology sector. A working group is developing industry best practices as to how errors can build a safer workplace and how Member Companies can utilize this concept.
The underlying basis of human performance principles stems from Dr. Todd Conklin’s “5 Principles of Human and Organizational Performance” (HOP). Conklin’s principles include:
- “Human error is normal.”
- “Blame fixes nothing.”
- “Learning is vital.”
- “Context drives behavior.”
- “How you respond to failure matters.”
Humans make mistakes, and companies that embrace these principles can learn more about the context within which people work and respond to failure in a way that prevents catastrophe, as well as practice how to learn and improve safety, both proactive and reactively.
If you have input to share or are interested in joining the working group, contact COO Molly Determan.
