NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation

 

Other available dates: email us to book

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and NEBOSH have jointly developed a new one day qualification that shows how non-complex incidents can be investigated effectively.

By learning lessons and making improvements, organisations can avoid similar incidents occurring in the future.

"If minor incidents and near-misses are investigated well, organisations could potentially prevent more serious or catastrophic incidents happening."

Jill De Nardo, Head of Commercial Training at HSE

Who should attend the NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation training?

This qualification is for anyone who wants to carry out incident investigations effectively.

Employers, supervisors, SHE champions, union and safety representatives will benefit. Attending the course will enable you to:

  • Independently investigate simple incidents
  • Gather evidence including conducting witness interviews
  • Produce an action plan to prevent a recurrence of an incident
  • Contribute to team investigations for large scale incidents
  • Positively impact the safety culture in your organisation

If you are unsure whether this course is right for you, please contact us by email.

The one day NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation covers the following topics:

  • Moral, legal and financial arguments for investigations
  • Human and organisational factors that can contribute to an incident
  • The process for investigating incidents
  • Positive interview strategies and the barriers to successful interviews

How is the qualification assessed?

A practical assessment is completed at the end of the course. You will be provided with a pack of evidence and shown a video of three witness interviews. You will be asked to review the evidence, evaluate each interview and produce an action plan that will help prevent a recurrence of an incident.

The course will be run at the HSE Science and Research Centre in the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester International Airport.
