Near‐Miss Incident Management in the Chemical Process Industry

Journal Article

This article provides a systematic framework for the analysis and improvement of near‐miss programs in the chemical process industries. Near‐miss programs improve corporate environmental, health, and safety (EHS) performance through the identification and management of near misses. Based on more than 100 interviews at 20 chemical and pharmaceutical facilities, a seven‐stage framework has been developed and is presented herein. The framework enables sites to analyze their own near‐miss programs, identify weak management links, and implement systemwide improvements.
