Why we should record and report near misses:
It is important to define what constitutes a near miss. The definition of a near miss can vary, but it should generally include any unplanned event that had the potential to result in injury, illness, or damage. It is crucial to have a system in place for recording near misses. This system should be user-friendly and should allow employees to report near misses anonymously. Investigation of near misses is important. This investigation should identify the underlying causes of the near miss and make recommendations for corrective action.
The results of near miss investigations should be communicated to employees. This helps to ensure that everyone is aware of the risks in the workplace and is working to prevent accidents.
By recording and reporting near misses, employers can improve safety in the workplace and prevent accidents from happening. Near misses are a valuable source of information that can help to identify hazards and make the workplace safer.
Additional benefits of recording and reporting near misses:
Employers need to implement a system for recording and reporting near misses in the workplace. It is a simple way to improve safety and prevent accidents.
