What is Preventive Action?

When the team that ensures the safety of everybody in their organization find out something that might cause trouble, they decide on a plan in order to avoid such accidents from happening. In making a preventive plan, the team should have total awareness of what could possibly happen.

In figuring out a preventive action, the team does an assessment of not just the company’s equipment, but also the location, the workforce, the programs held, and the entire company itself. These preventive actions can also be formulated through the suggestions and feedback of the employees, customers and/or clients, or students’ actions.

What Should Be Included in a Corrective Action Plan

Corrective and preventive action plans are formulated in order to improve the organizations processes to eliminate causes of incidents or undesirable situations. When the action plan has been finalized or discussed by the team, it is then documented using a action form. The following are some necessary information that are needed to be filled up in action form:

  • Categorize whether it is documentation, system failure, wrong instructions, training, contractor fault, or operator fault
  • Requester’s name, department, and contact details
  • Assigned, determined, and completed by (personnel’s name, date, and remarks)
  • Descriptions of the incident or possible harm
  • Proposed immediate action (correction)
  • Root cause analysis
  • Proposed action for long term solution (corrective preventive action)
  • Responsible party
  • Verified by who and when
  • Comments on effectiveness of action taken
