Funny-I was just looking into this as well. I found this, which provides at least one definition of a near miss:
I am very interested in hearing what others have to say on this topic. Also, if anyone could point me toward some statistics on the relationships between near misses, injuries, fatalities, etc., I would very much like to include those in a group presentation to highlight the importance of reporting and addressing root causes of near misses.

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.
