Step 6: Compile a list of the faults that may occur in the job. In every job, things go wrong. Some things go wrong more often than others.
The Pareto 20/80 principle is true in the study of faults on the job. It’s important to be proactive and ask people who know the job about the typical fault conditions that might occur. When you schedule time to talk to people with experience in your new job and anyone responsible for oversight and quality control for the job, you’ll find that you can compile a list of job faults.
