Near Misses are potentially dangerous situations: ‘accidents waiting to happen’. By identifying near misses and eliminating them, we remove the causes of accidents before they happen. In the world of logistic services it is not possible for Health and Safety Managers to inspect all workplaces every day, looking for Near Misses. This is due to the decentralized nature of operations.
Den Hartogh count on their drivers for identifying and reporting Near Misses. This is why all our drivers are trained on recognizing and reporting potentially dangerous situations.
We investigate all Near Misses reported to us and we engage with our customers and loading/delivery sites for the implementation of improvement actions.
Through the investigation and removal of Near Misses, we prevent accidents from happening and create a safer work environment for everyone involved.
