A tool to assist with learning from unwanted events and/or threats in order to minimise Fatalities and Permanent Impairment incidents (FPIs).

Preventing harm to frontline workers via sharing is central to Our Commitment.  As such, Safer Together seeks to minimise Fatalities and Permanent Impairment incidents.  This requires becoming a learning focused industry. Current negative associations with labelling an incident as a ‘HiPo’ have previously hampered effective learning from these incidents.


Focus on ‘unwanted events/threats’ as triggers to investigate and disseminate lessons learned. Encourage industry to approach unwanted events/threats with a positive learning mindset.  Investigate, report and share the lessons from ‘High Value Learning Events’ triggered by unwanted events/threats occurring, regardless of whether it is classified as a HiPo or not. 

Use Learning Event Bulletins to facilitate discussions that influence and reinforce behaviours focused on helping prevent harm to frontline workers.


Safer Together has:

  • Produced Learning Event Bulletin templates that organisations can use to break down and communicate a Learning Event and preventative actions that could be considered by other organisations.  
  • Developed How To Guides to help prepare a Learning Event Bulletin.
  • Prepared a list of common ‘unwanted events and threats’.  This list is summarised in the Learning Event Bulletin How To Guide, and serves as a guide to 'triggers' for producing a Learning Event Bulletin.
  • Built a searchable web-based library for storing Learning Event Bulletins.
