Modern thinking on risk management puts heavy emphasis on the use of defences or barriers to prevent losses attributable 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. Effective barrier management involves linking the barriers on the Bowties to specific elements of the management system such as HSE-critical activities/tasks and their accountabilities/responsibilities, standards, policies and remedial actions to address any shortfalls.
This 2 half-days course is aimed at managers and supervisors who have various accountabilities/responsibilities for barrier management. It highlights the key principles of the Hazards and Effects Management Process (HEMP) and how the Bowtie technique can augment risk management in their organizations, at the same time facilitating effective risk communication.
This course is designed to help participants to:
- Achieve an understanding of the key principles of HEMP and the Bowtie Methodology;
- To gain insights into the principles of loss causation/prevention and the conceptual basis for barrier management;
- To gain a firm grasp of the essential features of barrier management and how it can be rendered effective through the implementation of HSE critical activities and through assigning personnel accountabilities/responsibilities for these activities;
- To gain familiarization with the Bowtie risk management tool and how it is applied to hazard/risk management;
- Interactive Learning
- Real Case Studies
- Worked Exercises
- Q&A Session
