NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation & Why The Course is Important

Since its establishment in 1928, RRC has helped millions of individuals across the world achieve professional, educational and vocational qualifications. RRC are the leading global provider of NEBOSH qualifications. We are one of the first training providers accredited to offer the new collaborative course from NEBOSH and the UK’s health and safety regulator – the HSE (Health and Safety Executive).

The NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation course is designed to enable learners to be able to carry out solo accident investigations, produce risk control plans and contribute to team accident/incident investigations for large-scale

investigations. The course is aimed at managers, supervisors, SHE champions, union representatives and aspiring health and safety practitioners. However, there are no entry requirements other than possessing an underpinning knowledge of health and safety issues – the course is versatile and can be studied by individuals from any background.

One of the fundamental driving factors behind the development of this course is to teach learners to question the ‘how’ and ‘why’ when incidents occur, in order to recognise the signs and stop future incidents. Additionally, learners will be able to provide detailed plans on how to reduce subsequent incidents in the workplace. The course aims to aid individuals in positively impacting the safety culture within their organisations.

This is a one day course, plus an assessment in which learners analyse a case study establishing poor and good practices in interviewing techniques. The examination process is unique in that learners do not need to attend an invigilated examination, making the course accessible worldwide.

RRC offer this course online throughout the world, classroom, In-Company and open courses initially in London with plans to offer them in all RRC centres over the coming six months.

Gary Fallaize, RRC managing director, said: ‘’This is an exciting collaboration; the course allows companies to drive down incidents in the workplace. And we are proud that RRC’s associate tutor Lizzie Kenyon was involved in the development of the materials for this qualification – again, showing the high quality of the trainers working with RRC.’’
