Why is Near Miss Training for Managers in Industry Important?

When NMR systems work well, they show us where our work processes are weak, both in safety and getting the job done efficiently. But often, organisations just see near miss reports as a bureaucratic formality and miss the chance to leverage NMR to identify root causes of issues. This means the same issues keep coming up, and managers end up using quick fixes or telling workers off instead.

If workers feel like they’re going to be blamed for speaking up, they might not report incidents properly, or at all. This makes it hard for managers to find and fix the real problems in how work is done.

Near Miss Training teaches managers how to get past these problems and use NMR to make real improvements. The training shows how understanding near misses can help fix safety risks and make work go smoother. It also teaches managers how to make sure workers feel safe reporting near misses, so that reports are honest and helpful.

Key Information

There are around 90 near misses for every accident that happens at work.

About Near Miss Training for Managers in Industry

Near misses foreshadow accidents as well as provide vital performance data. When used properly, they offer managers the chance to rectify fundamental problems before they result in injuries. Ineffective NMR systems often overlook these underlying causes, leading to recurrent incidents or unexpected hazards.

This training illustrates how managers can collect and respond to reports to implement significant safety enhancements. Participants gain insights into near misses, exploring how human psychology, as well as flaws in work tools, surroundings and procedures, contribute to mistakes. Armed with this understanding, participants are equipped to oversee efficient NMR systems, uncovering and addressing ongoing safety concerns.
