Interview Question Topics

The below list sets out suggested topics to cover in any incident interview. It is intended as a rough guide only. It’s not comprehensive and different incidents will suggest different topics to cover, however it can help ensure each common aspect is explored.

Interview Question Topics

Personal information - 

e.g. what got you into the construction industry? How are you feeling? How long have you worked here?

Supervision - 

e.g. how are you being supervised and supported in your work?

Upper Management - 

e.g. who decides how the work is planned and structured?

Policies - 

e.g. can the rules be followed all the time?

Organization - 

e.g. did you have all the resources you needed for the task? Are there schedule pressures?

Crew - 

e.g. who were you working with? Have you worked with them before?

Task -

e.g. how often have you done this task before?

Incident - 

e.g. what was different this time?

Check Yourself!

This Check Yourself tool asks you different questions to further your reflection and understanding about bias within the investigation process.  Just click on a question to learn more.

The questions are sorted into before-during-after an investigation interview, but they can of course be explored at any time – and whether your answer is yes or no!

Reflection is a professional trait.  It means being able to self-evaluate honestly, and take any necessary action as a result.  We are all biased, and biases can affect us in different ways.  The Check Yourself tool allows you to explore bias from a self-reflective perspective, and links you to more information to further your understanding of bias, and what you can do about it.
