About Near Miss Training

This comprehensive Near Miss Reporting for Effective Learning course guides users to establish successful near miss reporting systems that generate meaningful learning and safety improvements.

Trainees learn how to use near miss reporting (NMR) to analyse the contexts that cause human error and work with front-line staff to reveal how work is actually done within an organisation. This proactive approach gives you the insights you need to make meaningful improvements to work systems, enhancing safety and productivity.

Why Is Near Miss Training Important?

Effective near miss reporting helps leaders identify workplace hazards and proactively measure how risk controls are performing.

But unfortunately, NMR systems often fail to generate any significant learning or safety improvements because leaders fail to see the primary goal of NMR – to learn and improve.

Line managers can neglect reports, letting them become tick-box exercises that lead to negligible developments. Or front-line employees may only report on ‘forgivable’ incidents, often because they don’t understand what should be reported or fear repercussions.

This attitude lets the root causes of incidents go unaddressed, resulting in a lack of significant progress in safety performance.

Our comprehensive near miss training course shows you how to take a different approach and use near miss reporting as a powerful performance tool that can transform safety culture. You will learn how to extract meaningful lessons from near misses, promote positive learning behaviours and engage front-line workers to achieve lasting improvements in safety and business performance.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Near miss reporting plays a pivotal role in accident prevention. As an employer, you have a significant role to play in fostering a proactive safety culture within your organisation.

To prevent accidents, employers must:

  • Establish clear and comprehensive policies and procedures for near miss reporting
  • Equip employees with the knowledge and skills to identify and report near misses
  • Encourage and empower employees to report any near miss incidents they witness or experience without fear of reprisal
  • Create an open and supportive atmosphere that prioritises safety above all else
  • Implement an efficient system that makes it easy for employees to submit near miss reports
  • Investigate near miss incidents
  • Introduce proactive measures to control potential hazards and improve workplace safety based on the insights gained from near miss reports

Explains what near misses are, the purpose of NMR and why it’s vital to improve workplace safety. Also outlines the common obstacles an effective reporting system must overcome.
