Most safety professionals agree that a facility or site audit would uncover at least one near miss condition or scenario at any time, on any day.
In the construction industry, near miss incidents are common occurrences where an accident was narrowly avoided. They’re also a precursor to more dangerous and expensive events. Tracking near misses can help companies reduce the number of incidents by monitoring when and where potential hazards take place. In Hays Companies’ new white paper, Senior Vice President Abby Ferri details:
- How to start a near miss reporting program
- Why it’s so important
