SCIC Safety Case Specialist Workshop – Bow Tie Analysis

As part of SCIC’s efforts to help industry build capability in the implementation of Safety Case, a series of specialist courses on the key elements of the Safety Case regime has been developed to provide in-depth training in specific technical fields.

Through Safety Case, every MHI must show a link between measures taken and the safety critical events (SCE), including a description of the control measures and their links to the SCEs. Bow-tie Analysis is a technique that can be used to visually make these links.It is also used as a simple method to analyse and demonstrate the cause-and-effect relationship in Major Accident Scenarios. The workshop aims to build industry competency in using Bow-Ties for Safety Case and risk management and build capability in MHIs to utilise Bow-Ties to improve their internal process safety measures and barriers.

Workshop Objectives

The 1-day workshop on Bow-Tie Analysis is aimed at helping participants to acquire the skills and knowledge in the following aspects:

  • Understand the Bow-Tie Method
  • Understand what the benefits and limitations of Bow-Ties
  • Understand the differences between proactive and reactive risk management
  • Be able to identify top events and hazards
  • Be able to identify threats and consequences
  • Be able to assess the adequacy of their control measures through Bow-Tie Analysis
  • Understand the hierarchy of controls
  • Learn how to apply Bow-Ties to SCEs identified in the Safety Case
  • Be able to build a Bow-Tie diagram to demonstrate process safety   

Scope of Training

The scope of the training includes:

  • Bowtie benefits and limitations
  • Proactive and reactive risk management
  • Hazard and top event
  • Threat and consequences
  • Hierarchy of controls
  • Type of safeguard or barrier
  • Drawing the bow tie
