A solidly implemented HSE Management System (HSE-MS) is an essential basis for good HSE performance. Outstanding performance and continuous improvement will only be achieved when there is a culture in which the elements of the management system can flourish. To make the system life, Clear Personal Responsibilities are crucial: Everybody understands and accepts what should be done and knows what is expected of them. That is the reason why the risk identification, assessment and control module is the heart of the management system. Linking the identified barriers and controls to people via the critical activities to close the continuous improvement loop is the missing link many organizations struggle with. The Bowtie Methodology is a very strong tool to help us to reach this goal.

This 2-day Bowtie and Risk Management workshop aims at the integration of two crucial elements of the Risk-MS at the level of line and assets managers.

  • Risk Management Framework (focused on the relations to manage the risks)
  • Risk Management using the Bowtie methodology for significant risk and HSE Cases (How to create operationally relevant HSE Cases using the Bowtie Methodology)

Understanding of these elements provides the participants with a thorough understanding of the Risk Management Framework and (HSE) Risk Management via the Bowtie technique as well as their own role in improving the performance of their unit. At the end of the workshop, participants will have a thorough understanding of the two building blocks of the Risk-MS and how to make the risk management life through a series of exercises.
