The National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH) and 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.
Learning to investigate incidents is a vital skill by examining the factors that have contributed to causing an incident, you can make improvements to the health and safety practices in your organisation and work towards avoiding similar incidents occurring in the future.
Where and When?
We run this course in Swindon, Wiltshire at various dates throughout the year – we can run this onsite if you have enough candidates.
The NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation consists of one unit –
Unit INV1: Introduction to Incident Investigation which covers the following topics:
