1. Actually, you should be thinking about increasing incident reports. Increasing incident reports means you are instilling a culture of safety.  If everyone is raising awareness about safety you will see people identifying things that can lead to bigger incidents, the ones you really want to avoid.  

2. You also shgould read all of the incident reports and start looking for trends such as medication errors, equipment malfunctions, gaps in communication, etc.  Find the top five and then start to draw connections.  Look for connections.  In most cases once you start to work backwards from the incident, you will start to see how there are many players involved in one incident.

Are you trying to reduce incident reports in general, reduce errors from happening, or NSI's, which I had to Google, and means needle stick injuries?

Well, you could like all the unethical and greedy dog and pony show hospitals do. Make the process time consuming and difficult then harrass & itimidate the staff who make reports for tiny or exagerrated or appearance of wrong doing. Create a culture of fear and distrust that ensures unsafe care.

Sorry about my sarcasm. Im sure you didnt mean to imply elimination of a proven way to ensure safe care and process improvement. Never forget we often are not understood due to how we say things rather what we said.
