  • Module 1 - Basic Bowtie Methodology

    Module 1: Basic Bowtie Methodology

    This module describes the basics of the bowtie method by going through the steps of building a basic bowtie diagram. It is particularly useful as a refresher for those who have already been trained in the bowtie method. This module can also be useful for those who would like to familiarize themselves with the bowtie method, but do not need in-depth knowledge as they will not develop bowties themselves, but need to interpret the diagrams and/or make risk-based decisions based on the diagrams.

    Basic Bowtie Methodology equips you with definitions of all the basic elements of the bowtie. It gives guidelines for creating a good bowtie and uses exercises to help you implement these guidelines. The course starts with a brief introduction to bowties and then follows the steps to create a bowtie diagram. It also introduces the evolution of bowtie methodology and the advantages of using it in barrier-based risk management. For each step, the theoretical lessons are followed by an exercise.
