A useful piece of advice we could all benefit from is letting someone know about a “near miss” we have experienced so it can be corrected to prevent a future mishap or worse accident. Our Health and Safety Co-ordinator Angela wants to make everyone aware of these “Near Misses” and the importance of reporting them to someone who can sort the problem out.
Here at Envirocare Angela is our first port of call with incidents like this, no matter how trivial it may seem at the time, think about whether it could have been worse or developed into something more serious. How many times do you hear someone say “that nearly happened to me a few weeks back” – if only they had let someone know, the poor guy who is suffering may have been able to avoid the incident from ever happening. Things such as nearly tripping over something, nearly damaging yourself due to a loose fixing on an item, anything when you say “I nearly …” report it.
