- Most near-miss reporting systems don’t realize their full potential
- Unintended consequences undermine well intended systems
- Behavioral approach uncovers opportunities and sets a clear path for success
ADI uses its unique behavioral approach to identify and address improvements in an organization’s near-miss reporting system.
The intent of near-miss reporting is to learn from and prevent future accidents and incidents. While world-class safety cultures typically have thriving near-miss reporting systems, many organizations find significant gaps between their system’s intent and its ultimate impact.
At ADI, we know through the science of behavior that even with the best of intentions, many near-miss reporting systems discourage the very behavior they require—reporting a situation where an injury or damage could have happened but didn’t. ADI works with clients to make their process stronger, beginning with an assessment of the system's design, management practices around reporting, near-miss data analysis, communication, and organizational climate.
We assess your near-miss reporting system and then identify and address system deficiencies. Specifically, we help to
- Understand the organization’s culture and its impact on reporting
- Analyze and address intended and unintended consequences for reporting
- Improve safety work order systems
- Identify system outputs and related opportunities for improvement
- Analyze trends that enable a more targeted approach to prevention
- Define new behaviors at every level that will maximize the impact of the near-miss reporting system
For decades, ADI has helped its clients close the gaps between intention and impact by applying the science of behavior to practices, processes, and systems. By maximizing learning and prevention, we partner with our clients to optimize their near-miss reporting systems, leading the way to a stronger safety culture.
