Modern day thinking on risk management puts heavy emphasis on the use of defences or barriers to prevent losses attributed to organizational disturbances. Failure of these barriers leads to unwanted incidents.
Barrier management is therefore an important facet of risk management. The Bowtie technique is ideally suited for this purpose, allowing detailed analysis of prevention and mitigation measures – in other words, the barriers – for specific hazards and their ultimate consequences.
The Bowtie technique is currently widely used in such diverse sectors as oil and gas, chemical process, power generation, mining, aviation/aerospace, healthcare, manufacturing, IT security, finance and government.
This two-day workshop provides participants with a firm grounding of the principles of the Hazards and Effects Management Process (HEMP) and the theoretical and practical aspects of Bowtie applications. Participants will be required to undertake a number of worked exercises in order to gain practical experience with the use of Bowties.
