Why is this Information critical?
The events leading up to industrial accidents have always been recognized as critically important and have been carefully investigated to learn how to avoid the causes of accidents going forward. Very effective analytical methods have been developed over the years, to drill down and identify the root causes of accidents, but the analysis is based on the information available from after the fact investigations.
Industry has learned that they can also analyze near misses, which are incidents that could have been accidents but were not because of pure luck, to determine the same root causes as those that lead to costly accidents. Near misses provide FREE LESSONS LEARNED, but collection of this information is extremely limited.
Why isn't this information available now?
Accident and incident information has been collected like Sherlock Holmes for over 50 years resulting in limited and incomplete information on the events leading up to incidents. Companies try to cajole workers into self-reporting near misses or they catch them by spying, with very little success. Less that 5% of near miss information is currently captured.
