Measuring and Managing Incidents

To help drive down the number of accident injuries the BCSA Health and Safety Committee has prepared the attached Guide to the Management of Near Miss / Hit, Unsafe Acts / Conditions Reporting.

This guide gives two versions of how incidents can be monitored, measured, and managed:

1: is by using sample inspections to identify and record unsafe acts or conditions.

2: is by introducing a programme as part of behavioural safety to encourage those in the workplace to identify the issues and address them before reporting for record purposes.

Some members already have established measuring and managing systems in place and this version is for others to consider introducing such processes. BCSA will survey the members later in the Year to see if sufficient information is available to collate the industry norm’s for accumulation and benchmarking.
