||Identification, analysis and dissemination of information on near misses: A case study in the construction industry
||Jan. 2010, Vol.48, No.1, p.91-99. Illus. 41 ref.
||This article proposes guidelines for identifying, analysing and disseminating information on near misses in construction sites. The guidelines were devised and tested within the scope of an occupational safety and health project for construction sites in Brazil. The monitoring of near misses was part of a safety performance measurement system. Among the main results, a dramatic increase in both the number and quality of reports stands out after the workforce was systematically encouraged to report.
