EHS Near-Miss/Close Call Reporter


Welcome to the Near-Miss/Close Call Incident Reporting System!

A near miss is an incident where no property was damaged and no personal injury sustained, but where, given a slight shift in time or position, damage and/or injury or illness easily could have occurred. It can be thought of as a "close call." EHS encourages reporting of near-miss/close call incidents so that contributing factors can be identified and abated before they result in personal injury/illness or property damage. By reporting these circumstances you are contributing to a safer and healthier campus environment. We appreciate your participation and assure you that there is no risk of repercussions for reporting a situation or hazard.
