NEBOSH HSE Introduction To Incident Investigation

NEBOSH and Great Britain’s Health and Safety Regulator, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), have joined forces to develop 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.

Course Description


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

Employers, supervisors, SHE champions, union and safety representatives will benefit.

Course Content

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

At the end of the course delegates will be able 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

Employers benefits from gaining this qualification:

• Drive down repeat incidents – learn lessons so it doesn’t happen again
• Confidence that your organisation’s approach to investigations is robust
• Improved safety culture by encouraging a proactive approach to incident investigation
• Build in-company expertise
• An approach to incident investigations that reflects best practice


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.
