Bow-tie Risk Analysis

Improve safety with effective risk management

Proactive methodologies such as Bow-tie analysis represent important ways to reduce risks in order to avoid costly and impactful operational disruptions.

The Bow-tie methodology is a qualitative risk assessment that provides a visual representation of the causes of unintended events, likely outcomes, and measures in place to mitigate or control hazards. It is often conducted after an initial PHA, and has been adopted in industries such as mining, oil & gas, chemicals and pharma. Due to its graphic nature, Bow-tie analysis is easily understood by all levels of operations and management, and provides critical information that allows you to improve the safety of your processes and make better business decisions.
