Near Miss Best Practices

SKU: C-932
Train your employees the program that is designed to identify, record, and address near miss incidents that will improve worker safety.
Training time: 20 Minutes

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has described “near misses” as incidents where no property was damaged and no personal injury sustained, but where, given a slight shift in time or position, damage and/or injury easily could have occurred. It has been shown that injury and damage-producing events are frequently preceded by warning signs or near miss incidents. For this reason, a program designed to identify, record, and address near miss incidents will improve worker safety and the safety culture of an organization.

Topics covered:

  • Define the terms “near miss,” “incident,” “best practice,” “root cause,” and “controls”
  • Identify near miss incidents
  • List items that should be included in all near miss reports
  • List best practices for near miss programs
  • Identify the roles of workers, supervisors, and management in near miss programs
  • List the benefits of the proactive safety improvements generated by near miss programs
  • Identify ways to improve participation in near miss programs
