How about this:

-       A near miss is an accidental event that has not resulted in any personal injury, illness, or damage.

-       Unsafe working conditions, unsafe employee work habits, improper use of equipment, and use of malfunctioning equipment have the potential to cause work related injuries.

Seeking to not reinvent the wheel, does anyone have a near-miss reporting form they like?  I have one but I'm not happy with it.
