Near Miss Reporting

We are all responsible for reporting near misses we are involved in or have which must be done in a timely manner. Near misses can be reported using either a near miss postcard or electronically on Datix (recommended).

A Near Miss is an undesired event which could have resulted in injury or ill health to a person and/or property damage but was avoided by good luck. Any unsafe acts or conditions identified can also be reported as near misses.

We are all expected to co-operate with any investigations required and as part of good communication and commitment to making a safe workplace your manager will tell you about the outcome of the investigation.

More cards are available by contacting HR Direct.
