>I am considering making it a training requirement that everyone submits one near miss (or safety improvement if they can"t identify any near misses) each year so they know the process of filling out the form. This requirement will be a safety objective that has to be met for their annual performance evaluation.

This would be a great sign of the kind of generative culture that the National Academy of Sciences describes in Safe Science: Promoting a Culture of Safety in Academic Chemical Research (2014)
