A high-potential incident is an incident or near-miss that, realistically, could have under other circumstances caused one or more fatalities.

Awareness of high potential incidents at other workplaces is a key factor in preventing them at yours.

APPEA encourages members to help prevent major incidents by sharing their experiences.
