NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation Course

At Reynolds Training Services, we’re delighted to be one of the first learning partners NEBOSH has accredited to offer its new Introduction to Incident Investigation qualification.

This practical one-day course covers the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of minor incident investigation, to help ensure such incidents don’t happen again, and don’t develop into major incidents.

John Reynolds, Managing Director at Reynolds Training Services, said: “The course shows how non-complex incidents can be investigated effectively. It’s suitable for anyone who gets involved in incident investigations, including team leaders, SHE champions and safety representatives.

By “learning lessons and making improvements”, organisations can “avoid similar incidents occurring in the future”, he added.

Introduction to Incident Investigation course: key features

The course gives the skills and understanding required to:

  • Independently investigate simple incidents
  • Gather evidence, including conducting witness interviews
  • Produce an action plan to prevent a recurrence of an incident

The end-of-course assessment allows learners to analyse a filmed case study, critique interview technique and make recommendations to avoid a recurrence.

This new Incident Investigation qualification will help your organisation to:

  • Drive down repeat incidents
  • Adopt an incident investigation approach that is robust and reflects best practice
  • Identify any risk control measures that require improvement
  • Sharpen the hazard awareness of learners
  • Improve safety culture by being proactive when it comes to incident investigation

NEBOSH and the HSE

Matthew Powell-Howard, Qualification Development Manager at NEBOSH, said: “The underlying and root causes of incidents are very rarely explored fully. This qualification will help learners understand what a robust approach to non-complex incident investigation looks like, which will help improve the health and safety culture within organisations.”

Jill De Nardo, Head of Commercial Training at the HSE Training and Events, added: “If minor incidents and near-misses are investigated well, organisations could potentially prevent more serious or catastrophic incidents happening. Investigating incidents helps you to identify trends and ensure your control measures are effective.”

The one-day course, NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation, is designed to appeal to as broad an audience as possible in terms of both job role and industry. It is taught in an accessible and enjoyable way.
