Good Catch/Near Miss Program
A Good Catch is when someone recognizes an unsafe condition or poor-quality work, and proactively takes action to prevent something bad from happening. This may involve pausing the work, correcting the unsafe situation or poor-quality work and coaching involved employees.
Near misses describe incidents where no property was damaged and no personal injury sustained, but given a slight shift in
time or position, damage and/or injury easily could have occurred.
