The essence of safe processes and operations is about managing risks

This can be successful when we have a deep insight on:

  • Do we understand what can go wrong?
  • Do we know what are the systems in place to prevent things going wrong?
  • Do we know that these systems will work when needed?

This becomes significant as historically organizations have little focus on low frequency, high consequence risks and with new technologies, the complexity of the primary processes in organizations is increasing rapidly and safe operations are always questionable. This calls for plugging the gap between technical possibilities and what organizations are ‘designed’ to handle. We at Sudaksha, enable organizations to manage risks through the barrier based risk management using the bowtie methodology & BowTieXP software. Barrier based risk management and bowties-advanced barrier management Barrier based risk models, and in particular BowTie diagrams, are increasingly used to assess and measure key risks that can influence your critical business processes. Process disruptions can have an effect on efficiency, safety, quality or reputation. For many years the BowTie method and BowTieXP software tool have been used by many companies from a variety of industries. These industries are: oil & gas, chemicals, mining, maritime, energy, military, government, aviation, transport, pipelines, healthcare and finance. A Bowtie diagram is not just a static picture useful to visually communicate your risks. The barrier based risk management model can be also be used for verification and for compliance. For these purposes existing data is used coming from audits, inspections and incident analysis. Furthermore data is used related to required competencies (for maintaining barriers), ongoing or planned maintenance, performance standards, external conditions – or even a DCS system. This is what we call “advanced barrier management”.
