Each week, we highlight a Near Miss report that has an important learning moment to offer. Report of the Week includes the synopsis of the highlighted report, the lessons learned and leading practices that emerged from the event, and discussion points that you can use to go over the highlighted case with your crew. Report of the Week is best used as a kitchen table training tool: it’s a fast, efficient way to quickly internalize an important learning moment.
"We use the Report of the Week as our weekly safety briefing. There have been days when I can hear them still discussing the incident hours after the briefing. I have had zero work-related incidents this year largely due to this program."
