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."
- Chief Thomas J. Braumiller, Pine Bluff Arsenal Fire & Emergency Services (AK)
"My department has been using the system for more than a year and we are seeing positive results because of it. We use the Report of the Week regularly for training bulletins."
- Anonymous Submitter
"The Report of the Week is sent to our personnel each week and they are encouraged to complete at least one hour of training on it. The feedback from our members in the field has been very favorable and I feel that their situational awareness toward safety has been elevated."
- Eugene Hull Lieutenant, Training Division Columbus Fire and EMS (GA)
