									Near Miss or Major Avoided

    So was your incident a near miss and 
  learning curve or major event the ended 
   ‘Near miss’: an incident that could have
   resulted in an injury or illness to people,
     danger to health, and / or damage to
        property or the environment.
     Near Miss Reporting
• Getting workers to report safety incidents
  is hard enough; getting them to report near
  misses can seem impossible. The fact is
  many near misses go unreported,
  especially when it’s the result of a worker’s
  violation of your safety rules or procedures,
  such as when a worker almost loses a
  finger by reaching around a machine guard.
  Workers don’t want to be disciplined. So
  they stay mum about their close calls.
• But near misses are a valuable source of
  information for safety advisor or
  coordinators. They give safety coordinators
  the chance to pinpoint the weaknesses in
  their OHS programs and make corrections
  to prevent future incidents.
       Near Miss Reporting
There are numerous reasons why near miss reporting is of value

• Near miss / hazard reporting allows the workers to report
   unsafe or hazardous conditions which gives your company

• A near miss / hazard report is the only paper which is crew
   driven. All other documentation is management driven
   (company insists on safety inspections, meetings etc). Near
   miss reporting is documented evidence that the workers
   have bought into your safety program (clients understand
   this and look for it);
• There is a requirement by law for the identifying, reporting,
   investigation and mitigation of near misses / hazards;
• Near miss and hazard reporting is a heavily weighted area in
   the ‘Basic Safety Program’ (BSP) which is the protocol used
   for an oil and gas based company to achieve a Certificate of
   Recognition (COR).

   The Accident and Incident Diamond
Near miss incidents have the same basic causes as
  loss producing events. By understanding these
  basic causes and taking the necessary actions to
  eliminate them, loss-producing events are also

   The key element of success
• Employees must report all incidents and
  near misses to their supervisor. No
  reprisals or disciplinary action will be taken
  unless there is wilful misconduct,
  negligence or criminal intent by the
  person(s) reporting.
