Learn more about us and why we believe in barrier based risk management
The leading provider in barrier based risk management solutions
Today’s world is increasing in complexity and risks. Because of this, more insight and overview is required with regard to risk factors. And with that more useful information and communication is required for a safe working environment and reliable operation for all stakeholders.
We assist our customers to address three basic questions:
1. Do we understand what can go wrong?
2. Do we know what our systems are to prevent this happening?
3. Do we have information to assure us they are working effectively?
To deal with these questions and with constant change, companies need new and innovative means to manage their risks. Our goal is to offer world class barrier based risk management software solutions to identify and manage operational, tactical and strategic risks – from the work floor to a corporate level and across the enterprise.
We believe that barrier based risk management can contribute to less incidents, but also to better insight and knowledge transfer, improved efficiency, higher returns, cost savings, better quality and even a competitive strategic advantage.
CGE Risk Management Solutions delivers standard “off the shelf” software for barrier based risk management. The software can be used for risk assessments, audits & inspections, incident management (reporting, analysis, investigation and action tracking), compliance management and a ‘barrier based’ document library.
The core of the software is the qualitative and visual “bowtie” risk asessment method that helps you to make risk understandable. To understand incidents and process deviations, we support various methods such as BSCAT (DNV GL), Tripod, Barrier Failure Analysis, Timeline, Root Cause Analysis and TOP-SET RCA (Kelvin TOP-SET)
This will allow you to understand what you can do to control these risk and manage your critical barriers and controls to enable safe and efficient operations.
We started BowtieXP in 2004. Today we offer a suite of standard “off the shelf” software products serviced by a team operating from The Netherlands, United Kingdom, Australia and Houston with a global partner network on 7 continents.

We believe in good methods, excellent software solutions and good services. Our software solutions are all based on risk management and incident analysis methods that have been around for many years and have been accepted by many industries. The visual and qualitative bowtie risk assessment methodology is at the heart of what we offer. The basis of this method is identifying which barriers are important to be managed, in order to control what you do as an organization. Whether this is drilling for oil, transporting people or providing financial services.

Whilst the current recording style of a HAZOP is relatively easy to interpret, it does not provide immediate clarity - particularly for those who were not present during the study, or when reviewing or revalidating studies at regular intervals. In this blog, we will elaborate on why it can be useful to create bowties from HAZOP studies. Limitations of HAZOP HAZOP (Hazard and Operability) is a methodology which uses a structured, deviation-based approach to identify possible causes and potential consequences and assign or propose appropriate safeguards to eliminate or reduce [...]
The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recently released a new guide to help petroleum refiners comply with its Process Safety Management (PSM) standard (1910.119).

In an effort to reduce these incidents, OSHA introduced the National Emphasis Program (NEP) in 2007, which was designed to verify whether refinery operators were maintaining PSM compliance. After reviewing [...]
