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.
