Near Miss Safety Reporting Form

Knowing about, and addressing, near-miss incidents is a crucial step in reducing injuries. If you experienced a near-miss, there’s a good chance somebody else also has – or will. There’s also a good chance that the next time it won’t be a near-miss, it will be an injury. You won’t get in trouble for reporting a near-miss incident. We want to learn about them so we can address the root causes. Remember – our goal is a zero-injury workplace! Please use this link to fill out an anonymous report that will be sent to the Safety Committee team members.
