HPI Principles Guide Our Safety Journey
Domtar safety leaders first encountered the idea of human performance improvement (HPI) in 2013 at a Pulp & Paper Safety Association conference focusing on human behavior. HPI principles have driven our safety journey ever since, leading to a steady decline in workplace injuries between 2013 and 2017.
According to Domtar Pulp & Paper Safety Director Larry Warren, HPI principles have enabled our growing understanding of human behavior and its impact on our overall performance, with a special emphasis on safety as a part of our ongoing efforts to prevent injuries. HPI, based on work by the U.S. Department of Energy, helps reduce the likelihood of errors and the potential for a catastrophic result.
