Abstract: The topic of including 'near misses' (i.e. any event which could have escalated to an accident) in safety management systems with the aim to prevent major accidents is relatively new. Although its importance has more and more been recognised, it is not yet a commonly accepted fact that near miss reporting should be an integral part of a safety management system. In this paper, examples of current experience in the chemical industry with near miss data are discussed. In addition to this qualitative discussion, quantitative arguments are put forward regarding the impact of near misses on QRA estimates.
