HPI Tools Series: Employee Intervention


March 2016

Human Performance Improvement (HPI) toolBrighton team members can always rely on each other when things are going well and when they’re not. In fact, it’s those not-so-good times when the internal support system is perhaps most important.

Employee teamwork is the foundation upon which the Human Performance Improvement tool Employee Intervention is based. It’s also a critical component of our continued efforts toward enhancing Brighton’s culture of safety. Brighton’s emphasis on Employee Intervention also aligns with the Occupational Safety & Health Administration’s imperative that employees play a key role in discovering and controlling hazards that may develop, or already exist, in the workplace.

Working Together for the Safety of Everyone

Employee Intervention encourages every team member to stop an unsafe activity that they witness. Employees are asked to correct what’s wrong, coach a teammate toward improved work practices or communicate the situation with a supervisor. Just as importantly, they are expected to present the intervention in a way that will be welcomed, without being confrontational.

A few things to consider if you witness something that might compromise safety:
