Home/ NEBOSH/NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation (English)™

Course Objectives

It is expected that this qualification will be delivered over the equivalent of one day (depending on the mode of study). You will be required to undertake three hours of pre-course reading before your course commences.

Some suggestions for this pre-course reading include:

  • Reading and understanding the requirements of your organisation’s incident investigation policy;
  • Reviewing a sample of your organisation’s previous incident investigation reports to find what lessons have been learnt; and
  • Reviewing some of the incident investigation case studies from the HSE’s website that may be relevant to your organisation

Benefits for students

On completion of this qualification you will be equipped with the necessary skills to carry out an unaided incident investigation of a noncomplex incident. The qualification will take you through the four steps to a good incident investigation. This includes providing you with the skills required to identify the immediate, underlying and root causes of incidents.

Witness interviewing is a valuable skill for an incident investigator. The qualification, therefore, introduces you to the PEACE model for interviewing. Once
you have gained an understanding of the PEACE process you will be able to apply this to three incident interviews as part of your final assessment.

The knowledge, understanding and skills that you will gain from this qualification will also allow you to contribute to team investigations of larger-scale incidents.

Benefits for employers

NEBOSH has collaborated on the development of this specialist qualification with the British health and safety regulator, the 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.

Therefore, your employer will benefit from having an ‘in-house’ trained incident investigator who can carry out good quality incident investigations.Your employer will also benefit from learning lessons from incident investigations. Once the root cause(s) of an incident have been identified and additional control measures put into place to deal with these causes, then there should be no recurrence of the same type of incident. In the longer term, this will save your employer money.

Who Should Attend?

This qualification is aimed at managers, supervisors, SHE Champions, union representatives and aspiring health and safety practitioners. It would not be suitable for current health and safety practitioners.
