SafetyFirst Focus: Peer Checking

KentuckyOne Health

Take advantage of working together to perform fast and easy verifications of each other’s work:

  • Offer to check the work of others – second check a calculation, proofread a memo, offer to help a team member with their work
  • Point out unintended slips and lapses – a supply room key left on the counter, an order placed in the wrong chart
  • Point out work conditions that your team member might not have noticed – a floor that was recently mopped

Can you identify at least two common activities in the area you work that could benefit from a peer check?
