What is the Four Eye principle?

Matthew Burgess What is the Four Eye principle

Many years ago, our business implemented what we refer to as the 'four- eye' process.

Essentially, this control process is designed to ensure that at least two people review every piece of correspondence or work performed, even in what would otherwise be considered to be a 'simple' situation.

In more complex scenarios, we often have a six or even eight-eye review process which can often involve a peer review of certain technical issues by lawyers who might in fact specialise in other areas.

While our four-eye process does not eliminate all mistakes, it certainly provides an excellent safety mechanism in the vast majority of cases.

It also aligns with one of our key mantras – measure twice; cut once.

Many mantras we live by at View are profiled in my business book 'Laws for Life'.
