Near Miss Safety Opportunity September 2018

  • Near misses are a warning that something is not working and enables us to learn lessons before a serious incident occurs , maybe involving you or a working colleague.
  • It helps management to find trends and faults within the system and introduce effective control measures.
  • Near miss reports give us the opportunity to work at the bottom of the triangle , which is always better as it
    does not involve injuries and gives us more information to identify trends than those identified from accidents.
  • By reporting near misses and learning from them, everyone will benefit from working in a safer environment.
