Near miss and accident Information is critical to improving Workplace Safety
The events leading up to workplace accidents have always been recognized as critically important and have been carefully investigated to learn how to avoid the causes of accidents going forward. Very effective analytical methods have been developed over the years, to drill down and identify the root causes of accidents, but the analysis is based on the information available from after the fact investigations.
Industry has learned that they can also analyze near misses, which could have been accidents but were not because of pure luck, to determine the same root causes as those that lead to costly accidents. Near misses provide free lessons learned, but collection of this information is extremely limited.
The challenge of information discovery
Accident information has been collected like Sherlock Holmes for over 50 years resulting in limited and incomplete information on the events leading up to accidents. After the fact evaluation is always imperfect as recall is subjective.
Near misses must be self-reported or caught through observation, which rarely happens. Less than 5% of near miss information is currently captured.
