The Bowtie Methodology lies at the foundation of The Hazards and Effects Management Process (HEMP), the latter being originally developed to provide a structured approach to the analysis of safety hazards throughout the life cycle of an installation that has become the International Best Practice for risk management. The Bowtie technique offers a powerful visual tool for analyzing hazard scenarios and communicating to the workforce how hazards are released, how they can escalate and how they can be managed effectively.
Within the context of HSE Cases, the Bowtie technique is mainly used for the detailed analysis of the controls for Major Accident Hazards (MAHs). For Offshore Contractor HSE Cases, MAH Bowties are usually required for decommissioning activities, well services (such as drilling and workovers) and marine, lifting and helicopter operations.
This two-day training provides participants with a firm grounding of the principles of the Hazards and Effects Management Process (HEMP), the theoretical and practical aspects of Bowtie applications, and how to utilize information from the relevant sections of the HSE Case to develop enhanced MAH Bowtie models. Participants will be required to undertake a number of worked exercises in order to gain practical experience with the use of Bowties.
This course is designed to help participants to:
