Frequently Asked Questions

On average, how many near misses occur before an accident?

There are around 90 near misses for every accident that occurs at work, according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE). For near-miss reporting to work, it is vital that appropriate systems must be in place to support it.

Near misses are excellent forecasters of future incidents. Organisations should work to create robust near-miss reporting procedures that fit with the work they perform.

Is near miss reporting a legal requirement?

There is no legal requirement to undertake inquiries of near misses, under Health and Safety Legislation. However, employers or managers of the staff are required to plan, establish, monitor, and evaluate their health and safety arrangements under the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulation 1999, with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidance. Near miss reporting plays a vital role in doing this.

How can an organisation encourage incident reporting?

To make incident reporting more effective, employers should first make reporting both easy and widely understood for all employees. Identified risks should be managed promptly following a report. Employees should be able to report incidents anonymously so that they do not feel pressure to stay silent. Employers should also seek input on the near miss reporting process from all staff members, since all staff members should be involved.
