HSE Interview questions

What are likely HSE interview questions? 

The HSE has identified key competencies, defined as the “proven ability to do something effectively” and will ask you questions on each of those competencies during your interview.

We have listed a selection of these competencies and given some sample questions to help you start to prepare for your HSE interview.

Start thinking about how you can give them evidence to prove you have each competency.
