N is for near-miss

A near-miss is “an event that, while not causing harm, has the potential to cause injury or ill health”, according to the UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) (www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/hsg245.pdf). Some near-misses – such as those involving pressure vessels, lifting equipment and explosives that fall under the Reporting of Incidents, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR) – must be reported to the HSE, but the regulator encourages internal recording of and investigation into “non-reportable near-misses”.
