Safety Hazard / Near Miss
A Safety Hazard is defined as any condition which might be dangerous to faculty, staff, students, or visitors at FAU or something that could result in damage to University property.
A Near Miss is defined as an unplanned event that did not result in injury, illness, or damage, but had the potential to do so. Only a fortunate break in the chain of events prevented an injury, fatality, or damage from occurring.
