NEBOSH to showcase new Incident Investigation Qualification at Safety and Health Expo.

Tuesday, 7 May 2019

NEBOSH and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will be showcasing their brand new joint qualification at Safety and Health Expo from 18-20 June at ExCEL London.

The exhibition will see the launch of the ‘NEBOSH HSE Introduction to Incident Investigation’. The one-day course covers the moral, legal and financial reasons for carrying out effective incident investigations. The qualification includes an innovative end-of-course assessment in which learners are asked to analyse a case study film and identify poor and good practices in interviewing techniques.

“At NEBOSH, we've wanted to produce a course on incident investigation for some time, and working with the HSE gave us the opportunity to develop this qualification,” says Matthew Powell-Howard, NEBOSH Qualification Development Manager. “The underlying and root causes of incidents are very rarely explored fully. This qualification will help learners understand what a robust approach to incident investigation looks like, which will help improve the health and safety culture within their organisations.”

As part of the Expo, representatives from NEBOSH and HSE will also be leading an interactive session on ‘Give PEACE a Chance! This interactive Q & A session will explore the use of the P.E.A.C.E. model in incident investigation and the principles of what good witness interviews look like. It will also explore the concept of bias, and how to deal with difficult interviewees.
The new leadership qualification follows on from the success of the NEBOSH HSE Certificate in Health and Safety Leadership Excellence which was launched last year. This one day course is aimed at senior or aspiring leaders who want to ensure they effectively fulfil their health and safety responsibilities. The qualification is based on the application of the HSE’s health and safety leadership values and students will learn how to apply them in the workplace.
