Reporting A Safety Concern or Near-miss
Please report all safety concerns and near-miss incidents to email@example.com as soon as possible. Be sure to provide an adequate description as well as include any supporting documentation such as pictures or reports if feasible. This email is continuously monitored and if additional information is required a team member will contact you.
Safety concern – A consideration that encompasses all factors that impact the safety, health, and well-being of any UMBC community member.
Near-miss Incident – A potential hazard or incident in which no property was damaged and no personal injury was sustained, but where, given a slight shift in time or position, damage or injury easily could have occurred. Near misses also may be referred to as close calls, near accidents, or injury-free events. For the sake of a safe work environment, UMBC ESH asks that all community members report any of these potential hazards immediately.
