    NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation

    Course Objective

    • NEBOSH has collaborated on the development of this specialist qualification with the British Health and Safety Executive (HSE). HSE inspectors have noted that incident investigations were generally very poor. The collaboration, therefore, combines the advanced technical expertise of the HSE with NEBOSH’s ability to deliver strong vocational qualifications. 
    • The qualification is aimed at managers, supervisors, SHE Champions, union representatives, and aspiring health and safety practitioners.
    On completion of the course, learners will:
    • carry out a solo accident investigation for noncomplex accidents and incidents including:
      • gathering of evidence
      • analysis of that evidence
    • produce an action plan; and
    • contribute to team incident investigations for large-scale incidents.
    The following points shall be discussed in the course:
    Topics Covered
    • Unit 1: Understand why incident investigations are carried out and how human and organizational factors contribute to incidents
      • Incident terminology, the moral, legal, and financial arguments for investigations, and management system requirements
    • Unit 2: Understand how to investigate incidents and confidently carry out an investigation
      • Investigating incidents, Positive strategies for and the barriers to successful interviews Advanced incident investigation techniques
    Activities
    • Classroom with Theoretical and Practical Implementation, Group Exercise, case studies & videos

      • How lessons learned from investigations can be used in the future.
      • Accident investigation teams (who should be involved, and competencies required).
      • Pre-investigation actions following an accident
