A near miss is an event not causing harm, but has the potential to cause injury or ill health (including a potential dangerous occurrence). A hazard is something with the potential to cause harm.

Near misses may seem trivial but they are a valuable source of information. Taking time to review the underlying causes is likely to reduce risk, improve health and safety and improve business practices.
