Conducting a fair and effective investigation provides a sound basis for decision making in a disciplinary situation. The objective of this course is to help delegates understand the importance of conducting workplace investigations in a fair and reasonable manner and in the best interest of natural justice. This training will give you a best practice approach to handling these often sensitive and difficult situations. Our course is aimed at management including directors or equivalent and other senior personnel in the organisation including production/operations, human resources, training, finance and occupational health.

This one-day course is centred around formal presentations from the expert trainer but also includes group discussion to enable the sharing of experiences and to ensure that all participants’ questions are answered fully. Practical exercises will be included.

How does it Work?

Onsite Training is when we come to you to provide training on your premises or at a location of your choice. Not only will we run the course at a time and venue that suits you, we will also develop a unique programme particular to the developmental, cultural and business requirements of your company.

What's Involved?


Step 1 | After initial discussions, you meet with our training specialist. Here you both work together to design and sculpt a more comprehensive programme outline.

Step 2 | From this outline, a course is designed which addresses your exact needs. Sometimes this involves a completely new course designed from scratch, this depends on your needs.

Step 3 | Once you're happy with everything, the trainer will deliver the course at a venue of your choice on a date that suits.

Step 4 | Once complete, feedback will be gathered from delegates to ascertain the ‘true’ impact. And finally a report will be compiled for you outlining outcomes alongside your stated objectives.
