Near Miss Reporting
FYI - Finding ways to increase near miss reporting is a challenge for many of our VPP sites. Learning which management system weaknesses are leading to near misses and accidents is one of the highest value activities in which a company can invest, and learning from near misses is much cheaper than learning from accidents.
The attached CCPS Process Safety Beacon identifies the need for near miss reporting. The Process Improvement Institute link below describes the reasons why near misses are not reported and shares how companies have increased the reporting ratio to as high as 105:1.
