A Near Miss is an unplanned event or incident that did not result in an injury or loss of any kind, but could have easily done so.

Examples of a Near Miss:

Slips or Trips

  • Dropping items

  • Worn tools or equipment

  • Damaged items

  • Cut fingers

  • Hit heads

  • Vehicle incidents

  • Bruised ego

It is important to report a near miss so that action can be taken to prevent an accident occurring.

Notify all near misses to a supervisor or manager as soon as possible. They will love to have the evidence to show the company is health and safety engaged!

Do not let a near miss become an accident!
