Near miss ‘touch screen’ reporting system

All accidents, incidents and near misses should be recorded and used for lessons learnt, to ensure continuous safety improvement on site.

A great deal can be learnt from trends in accident reporting.

The reporting process should capture all relevant information, but also be quick and simple to do.

Examples of how sites have recorded near misses and accidents include:

  • A mobile phone text number was established, to facilitate near miss reporting;
  • A near miss reporting system was improved by providing a reporting station with a touch screen, where employees could select the type of incident they wanted to report;
  • These reports were then sent instantly to the mobiles of each member of the site team, so they were made aware instantly and could take action immediately.
