WEEK 4 -- Transform Investigations

Instead of fixing the blame with a traditional "investigation," fix the problem with a Human Factors Event Analysis (HFEA). This practical alternative to mechanistic RCAs, superficial 5-Whys and punitive investigations builds trust, identifies process improvements and delivers a written report. Ideal for error-based events.

WEEK 5 -- Apply Classic Defenses (Basic)

Learn how to reduce common errors immediately with Classic Defenses like: checklists and 3-step Communication. See plenty of real-world examples. Discover how to build Situational Awareness with the "Scan & Focus" model.

Find out why it's a catastrophic mistake to rely solely on Classic Defenses.

“We have seen great improvement where we have successfully incorporated Jake’s HPI strategies.”
 
Shayne Wright, V.P. - Field Services, Power Engineers, Inc.

The $37 Billion Problem

Unwanted errors in high-hazard industries can:

 

To respond, many companies rush employees through a brief, one-time training or presentation. This may "check the box" and satisfy some regulators and executives. But most one-time trainings...

  • Don't build deep, lasting expertise among your staff

  • Don't apply theory to your unique, day-to-day operations

  • Don't solve advanced issues that arise only after 1-6 months

 

The result?

 

Some leaders assume that the "issue has been addressed." But most front-line experts see that policy, procedures, and culture haven't changed at all. And Human Reliability becomes yet another "flavor-of-the-month."


Sound familiar?

A Safer & More Reliable Work Culture

Practical Skills

Your people are busy. So, I summarize hundreds of pages of research saving you years of time. Your people get practical content they can apply immediately.

Expert Guidance

icon-4.png

Learning new ideas is easy. Putting them into practice is hard. And a few minutes of Q&A is never enough. So, in a series of brief coaching discussions, your people get feedback & guidance to maximize impact on work.

Sustainable Change

One-and-done trainings are a sprint. Improving culture is a marathon. We spread our workshops out over weeks or months. Why? So your people get reinforcement on core ideas, and enough "soak time" to experiment, adjust, iterate, and sustain momentum that drives real world change.

“The kind of long-term, deep mentoring that Jake does compounds over time and generates far more valuable results than any class or presentation by itself.”

Robert J. Latino, Principal al Prelical, LLC

Respect & Expertise

I respect how errors in high-hazard workplaces can instantly change careers, reputations, and lives.

I've served on reliability-driven teams as a firefighter, an EMT, a military paratrooper, and as the Human Performance Lead for 3,600 experts in a large electric utility.

I've felt frustrated, perplexed, even angry at errors that seem 100% preventable... in hindsight. And I've made plenty of errors myself.

 

So, over the past decade, I've assembled a set of practical strategies, skills and models that I wish someone had shared with me years ago.

I love sharing these ideas with leaders and technical experts in high-hazard industries so everyone can be safer, more reliable and more engaged in the work they do everyday.
