Please send any information regarding near-misses or safety incidents via the form below, or email details to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reporting near-miss or safety incidents is a very important way of identifying problem areas. A review over time may reveal patterns from which lessons can be learned. The information you supply will only be used to help identify hazards in the roadside and recovery working environment or weaknesses in operational procedures and training, which could have potentially high consequences.
All data will be held in strict confidence and you do not have to provide personal information, although it will help us if you do. Dates, times and specifics of the incident will be required.
Employees should additionally report near-misses and safety incidents to their employer, so that they can adjust their safety management practices as necessary.
What is a Near-Miss?
As outlined by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) http://www.hse.gov.uk/toolbox/managing/reporting.htm, a near-miss is an event not causing harm, but that has the potential to cause injury or ill health (the term near-miss will include dangerous occurrences). A dangerous occurrence is one of a number of specific, reportable adverse events, as defined in the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations 2013 (RIDDOR).
