Add a Near Miss Record to an Incident


To create a near miss record within an incident.


When you create an incident in Procore, you can add one or more near miss records to capture important safety details. In the construction industry, properly documenting near misses helps to correct potential problems and can help to reduce injury accidents in the future. Examples of a Near Miss include tripping over extension cords, minor falls that do not result in injury, and more.
