Best Practices For Near Miss Reporting

Best Practices For Near Miss ReportingA Near Miss is exactly what it sounds like: an incident that ALMOST caused an injury. And an injury can cost you thousands of dollars in hidden costs. Another injury on your OSHA 300 Log will also raise your Injury Rate, which can lead to an OSHA Inspection under the Site Specific Targeting program.

Correctly or not, many organizations chalk these incidents up to good fortune and go about their business, never taking the time to use these incidents as the wake-up calls they should be. But by investigating every Near Miss incident, you can identify and correct problems in your safety system BEFORE they lead to an injury and cost your company thousands of dollars.
