Im looking for a word that means:

making sure it does not happen again in the future


We do not want to distract from this but are focused now on rectifying and _____ [making sure the mistake is not repeated by doing XandY]

1 Answer 1


... on rectifying, and on precluding any repetition.

I find it difficult to place an intransitive verb here so suggest transitive preclude.

Preclude = to forestall, to head off
