We wrote the book on AESOP!

Updated: Jan 3, 2022

One of the key concepts we teach in Error Prevention training is called AESOP™.

AESOP, is one of the POWER TOOLS of error prevention. We sometime refer to it as the AESOP Mini-Huddle because it is a very effective tool that can be used in both individual and team huddles.

The history of AESOP and how it came to be developed.

The AESOP MINI-HUDDLE was developed by the Error Prevention Institute several years ago to provide an easy to remember framework or checklist to reduce mistakes, incidents, and accidents. It is an extension of all the concepts that we develop during Error Prevention training.


The AESOP MINNI HUDDLE is a tool which helps us to STOP and identify all risks prior to making a decision and to fully appreciate their combined potential to cause a problem. It is in the form of an easy to remember acronym for a checklist that consists of five questions that help you quickly determine the level of risk involved for an individual or team for a given task, project or event.

Error Prevention Training

The Guide trains everyone on AESOP and builds a CULTURE of ERROR PREVENTION.

The Ultimate Guide to AESOP provides each employee with an AESOP card the instructions on how and when to use it.

In addition, you will learn how to get started with AESOP, what is "The Pinch", using the I'M SAFE criteria, why AESOP works, 8 steps to conducting an effective AESOP Mini-Huddle and a case study showing how AESOP works in real life.

The Ultimate Guide to AESOP is available now for online purchase in the EPI Store.
