Why is Near Miss Training in Offices Important?

Any work system drifts towards failure over time, reducing efficiency, productivity and safety. This decrease in performance inevitably causes near misses – incidents that can reveal underlying problems if investigated effectively. However, workers often fail to report near misses because they misunderstand their learning potential or worry they’ll be held responsible.

This course develops an understanding of near miss reporting and how it can be used to close knowledge gaps and find where work systems need improvement. It also helps organisations move past blame culture and encourage the type of incident reporting and investigation that leads to meaningful improvements in safety and performance.

Are You Aware of Your Responsibilities?

Employers must protect the health and safety of their workers. Near miss reporting is vital in accident prevention, revealing unsafe conditions before anyone gets hurt.
