It is important that we have a reporting culture where all our employees are encouraged to report all near misses and close calls. A strong reporting culture will ensure that every hazard is controlled, risk is reduced in the workplace, and harmful incidents are prevented because all the conditions that lead to injury or loss are acted upon. All incidents must be investigated to determine the true potential for loss and to identify and review the root causes to determine any weaknesses in the system. We use the information that comes from investigating these incidents to improve our systems for better hazard controls combined with increased risk reduction, and then we share the lessons learned both within our company and outside with safety groups and Clients. All of this can be done to prevent an incident that can lead to some form of injury or loss. This is part of being proactive when it comes to safety.
