Every health and safety professional knows that learning the lessons from incidents – whether or not they resulted in someone being harmed – is one of the best ways of preventing further events.

The concerns, however, are that some organisations are not investigating incidents effectively, which means this crucial insight is missed. Perhaps the process has become about ticking a box rather than learning lessons; or maybe the person asked to conduct the investigation lacks the knowledge or confidence to perform this important task well?

NEBOSH, the international health, safety and environmental qualifications provider, has long been keen to meet the demand for practical incident investigation training. That is why it partnered with the Health and Safety Executive, the UK’s health and safety regulator, to create the NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation qualification.

This one-day, entry-level qualification is designed to give learners the knowledge and confidence needed to investigate minor incidents unaided.

“I recently passed the NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation,” says Mohammed Akbar, HSE superintendent at Bonatti. “Honestly, it was great, particularly the part where I learnt how to carry out investigation interviews. I chose to study eLearning so that I could do it in my own time and determine the perfect time for me to study.”

The NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation qualification will help you:
• Independently investigate simple incidents;
• Gather evidence and learn how to conduct witness interviews;
• Produce an action plan to prevent a recurrence;
• Contribute to team investigations of large-scale incidents; and
• Positively impact the safety culture of your organisation.
