David Craig, I am confused as to your definition of non-event. Was not the binding material an event? At work a guy dropped a wrench, it fell about thirty five feet. Had that wrench made contact with a worker below or scared a worker below into a reaction mistake of their own there could have been a recordable / reportable event. Even though no one was in the fall area, it was an event, it was a near miss.

I do agree that safety is of paramount importance, and reporting events in the could of, would of, should of, categories provides a valuable learning experience for us all. You have a very good topic, but I feel your definition of non-event is confusing.
