Lessons Learned Become Lessons Applied
Avalanche Worker Safety operates Avalanche|Near Miss, a database of workplace avalanche near miss events and accidents. Avalanche workers can anonymously submit and view reports of workplace incidents. No subscriptions, no usernames, no passwords – 100% free and easy access for all. The ultimate goal: avalanche workers can learn from each other’s near misses and mistakes. You can enter information on an event or look at submitted reports at avalanchenearmiss.org.
