Qualification in Focus
The NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation aims to end the cycle of incident-and-repeat through improved incident investigation technique and action. Often investigations fail to identify all the causes of incidents and focus too much on the individuals involved. As a result, the opportunity to review work methods and improve risk controls may be lost.
This one-day course covers the reasons and benefits of incident investigations; human and organisational factors; the process of investigation, including gathering and organising evidence and identifying immediate, underlying and root causes; interview technique; understanding the significance of bias and blame cultures.
The qualification includes an innovative end-of-course assessment which asks learners to analyse a case study film and identify poor and good practices in interviewing techniques. For more information on this qualification, click on the link below.
