A mishap, as defined by EM 385-1-1, Safety and Health Requirements Manual-USACE-ARMY is any unplanned, undesired event that occurs during the course of work being performed. This includes, accidents, incidents and near misses. Reporting requirements and timelines are specific to the type of incident and are often confused by safety personnel. The result is that many times the required timelines are not met. These procedures, associated timelines and reporting documents will be discussed in this webinar. In addition, the location of reporting forms and several specific examples will be discussed.
