What is a “Near Miss”?

Most safety activities are reactive and not proactive. Many organizations wait for losses to occur before taking steps to prevent a recurrence. Near miss incidents often precede loss producing events but are largely ignored because nothing (no injury, damage or loss) happened. Employees are not enlightened to report these close calls as there has been no disruption or loss in the form of injuries or property damage. Thus, many opportunities to prevent the accidents that the organization has not yet had are lost. Recognizing and reporting near miss incidents can make a major difference to the safety of workers within organizations. History has shown repeatedly that most loss producing events (accidents) were preceded by warnings or near accidents.

It is a Good safety management practice as reviewing the report (at the time and/or periodically) may help to prevent a re-occurrence. Recording these near misses can also help identify any weaknesses in operational procedures as deviations from normal good practice may only happen infrequently but could have potentially high consequences. A review of near misses over time may reveal patterns from which lessons can be learned.

Where a review of near miss information reveals that changes to ways of operating, risk assessments or safety management arrangements are needed, these changes should be put into effect.

Why do we need a Near Miss system? • We don’t record our Near Misses

Why do we need a Near Miss system?

We don’t record our Near Misses This is a request from insurance company and auditors.

Captures sufficient data for statistical analysis; trending studies

Behind each accident/incident is hiding multiple near misses We can prevent accident/incident.

Near-Miss reporting has been shown to increase employee relationships and encourage teamwork in creating a safer work environment

We reinforce the idea that any dangerous situation should be dealt at the time it is observed Don’t wait, act!

This embodies principles of behaviour shift, responsibility sharing, awareness, and incentives

Who is involved? • H&S reps will be trained to action and record near miss

Who is involved?

If I observe a situation which could potentially create an accident/incident it is my duty

If I observe a situation which could potentially create an accident/incident it is my duty to solve it quickly and record it. Near miss reporters can describe what they observed of the near miss incident, and the factors that prevented loss from occurring.

1. Is there an imminent risk of injuries? Is it potentially a hazard for the next person?
2. Can I sort it by myself? How much time it will take to sort the problem?
3. Is external help required? (sup/other department/contractors…)?
4. Do I have to report it somewhere else or to somebody else? (Sup/RCM
