This course introduces bowtie methodology (one of many barrier risk models) and examines the various bowtie analysis components.

Bowtie analysis is an increasingly popular approach to help manage risk. The course provides a critical review of the method’s benefits, limitations and practical uses, with hands-on practice at applying the technique. At the core of bowtie analysis is a risk analysis diagram with the hazard in the centre, and proactive and reactive risk criteria to either side. The diagram is in the shape of a bowtie, hence the name.
