Why is Near Miss Training for Managers in Offices Important?

When implemented successfully, NMR systems uncover the flaws in work systems that limit productivity and put workers at risk. Unfortunately, too many organisations see near miss reporting as box-ticking and miss opportunities to identify and fix the root causes of underperformance. When this happens, issues persist and managers are forced to rely on quick fixes or disciplinary action to try and compensate.

Shortcomings in NMR systems are made worse when workers are ignored or blamed when offering incident reports. Workers water down or hide incident reports entirely, depriving managers of the information they need to develop better work systems.

Near Miss Training helps managers overcome these obstacles and use NMR to drive meaningful improvements in work systems. The course explains how near misses can be leveraged to reveal and fix underlying safety issues as well as raise overall performance. It also helps managers promote psychological safety among workers and create an environment where near misses are reported consistently and accurately.

About Near Miss Training for Managers in Offices

Near misses reveal unsafe conditions and give managers opportunities to fix underlying issues before anyone gets hurt. However, ineffectual NMR systems fail to identify and address root causes, allowing repeat accidents or other unforeseen harm.

This course explains how managers can gather and act on reports to make decisive safety improvements. Users develop an understanding of near misses, including how psychology, alongside faults in work equipment, environment and systems, cause errors. This knowledge allows users to supervise effective NMR systems and reveal and fix persistent safety issues.
