Safety observations

Tampere University and TAMK

Safety observations can be used to prevent hazards and accidents and to promote well-being at the workplace. Only identified hazards can be managed so the observations have an important role in safety promotion. In addition to the safety problems, the observation can be a positive point also. No safety observation is too trivial to be reported.

If you notice something what can cause a accident, repair what you can and inform it to occupational safety personnel by safety observations form: (Haka-link for personnel and students):

You can use this service also when you report any danger or “near-miss” situation.


If you have an accident or a near miss, or you witness some other potentially dangerous situation, please do as follows:

  1. Help the victims
  2. Prevent additional damages
  3. Seek medical attention (even if you are not experiencing any symptoms at the moment)
  4. Report the incident by completing an Safety observations report
