While many employers investigate incidents, the quality of incident investigations varies – with incidents frequently attributed to “human error” while factors such as culture, training and work pressure are overlooked. Too often, investigations either fail to identify all the causes of incidents or they focus attention on the individual involved. As a result, the opportunity to review work methods and improve risk controls may be lost. The NEBOSH Introduction to Incident Investigation qualification is aimed at those who conduct investigations, such as supervisors and line managers, and it is a stand-alone qualification: learners don’t need to have completed any other specific qualifications or training to attend.
