NEBOSH INV – NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation

This qualification (NEBOSH INV) is aimed at managers, supervisors, SHE Champions, union representatives and aspiring health and safety practitioners.

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.
