How should I tell my team that they are doing their job poorly?

"Doing your job wrong" is a very broad and general assessment. You should start by giving much more specific feedback on what exactly is wrong and why it is wrong. Also, instead of totally emphasizing what is wrong, it is also a good idea to give balanced feedback on what is not wrong.

The spirit of how you do it is important, do it in a useful way that has the sincere intention of improving your performance, do not attack them by telling them that everything they are doing is wrong.

Unless it's your manager, it's not something you need to get involved in. It's your managers' job to monitor things like this. Raise your concerns with them if you think mistakes are getting dangerous or a serious problem.

Your manager may be asking you to help them, so in that case, don't just tell them they are wrong, that will provoke a reaction, instead explain and demonstrate how to get it right.
