How does TapRooT® define „application needs to be improved” (also known as „application NI”)? Let`s look at the definition on page 95 of the TapRooT® Root Cause Tree Dictionary®: Enforcement NI. This case relates to management`s actions to exercise control, influence behaviour and ensure that the person responsible actually follows PSPC by holding people accountable. (PSPC stands for standards, guidelines and administrative controls.) Note that this policy may change as the SEC maintains SEC.gov to ensure that the site works efficiently and remains available to all users. Keep in mind that it is just as easy for supervisors to ignore dangerous behavior as it is for an employee to deviate from a task (assuming the task was feasible). Reward and discipline also apply to the change in the supervisor`s behaviour. Now, I agree that a warning for critical safety or operational issues is an important reminder in the field, but it doesn`t solve the problems identified with the evidence above. When you use train/retraining as a remedial measure, you are implying that the person must not have known how to do the job in the first place. If this were the case, the cases should have been selected in the category „Root cause” „Training”. Training includes the person`s knowledge, skills and abilities to perform a particular task safely and successfully.
Training does not guarantee that the right measures are maintained to accomplish the task. The recognition, reward and discipline of supervision by supervisors, managers and colleagues ensures the acceptance and maintenance of correct job behavior. So how do you determine if an employee has not followed PSPC because enforcement needs to be improved? You can`t just assume that, you have to have evidence to prove it. How do you gather the evidence to prove it? Measure compliance. How many workers comply? How many are not? Audit. If you do not look at oversight and follow-up by regulators, you will not know for sure whether enforcement needs to be improved. If one worker has not joined PSPC, but 99 workers, you cannot really say that there is no enforcement. I know some won`t agree with me if compliance isn`t 100%, and that`s a scenario we discuss in detail in our 5-day TapRooT® Advanced Root Cause Analysis Team Leader training. Now, on the other hand, is management reinforcing bad behavior? For example, do employees take shortcuts to get their jobs done faster and are they rewarded by management for their speed? These things happen in the real world of production schedules, right? We hear about them all the time.
Shortcuts are ignored until someone is hurt, and then workers are punished for taking the same shortcuts they were rewarded for yesterday.

Please report your traffic by updating your user agent to include company-specific information. During your root cause analysis, you will find evidence to support the „NI of application” of the root cause based on the following statements from your root cause tree dictionary for a specific causal factor: Remember that you cannot train obedience®/conformity/positive behavior. If you are stuck in developing an active patch for Enforcement NI or one of our causes, stop and read your Fix Action Wizard®. If a user or application sends more than 10 requests per second, other requests from the IP address may be restricted for a short period of time. Once the request rate drops below the threshold for 10 minutes, the user can continue to access the content on SEC.gov. This SEC practice is designed to limit excessive automated searches to SEC.gov and is not intended or should not affect individuals who visit the SEC.gov site. However, if you then take corrective action to retrain, recall, and refocus on rules that target the employee or, in rare cases, the immediate supervisor, your investigation has started on track and ended up jumping on track. Remember not to move into law enforcement unless you have evidence. Observe how many employees comply with PSAB and supervisors` audit oversight. Look at any mixed messages management may send to employees. What behaviors are punished? What behaviors are rewarded? How do these behaviours fit into your PSPC? This is a quick clarification to avoid a clear no to poorly developed corrective actions.

An important best practice for management is to apply the right behaviours to do the job safely and effectively. However, this is easier said than done.
