    Resource: Near Miss Analysis Resource Available on Website
    A near miss is an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage — but had the potential to do so. Employees are often trained to work "safely" but are not trained to identify near misses or made aware of the positive impact near miss reporting can have to ensure employees are engaged in their operations. Now on the Responsible Distribution Resources page you can view actual near miss examples submitted by NACD members confidentially for the purpose of providing lessons learned for an improved chemical industry.
