A near miss is an unplanned work event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage to property – but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, illness, or damage to property; in other words, a miss that was nonetheless, very near.
All near misses must be reported to the Director of Environmental Health and Safety or their designee via Energy Group, University’s “Near Miss Report.” All near misses shall be reviewed by the Energy Group, Inc.’s Safety Department, and the Safety Committee.
A final investigation report will be submitted by the Director of Environmental Health and Safety or their designee within 72 hours of the Safety Committee Review. The final report shall contain quantified root cause analysis and corrective action recommendations.
