Addressing Human Factors in Bowtie Risk Assessment Method
By Mark Manton, Principal Engineer, Safety, Risk and Compliance with ABS Group
Bowtie analysis does not have an accepted methodology, only proprietary company or software guides, such as ABS Group's THESIS BowTie Risk Management Software. In order to define a standardized Bowtie methodology for process industries, the Center for Chemical Process Safety (CCPS), together with the UK Energy Institute (EI), has developed the concept book Guidelines for Barrier Risk Management (Bow Tie Analysis), which also addresses the element of human factors.
The aims of the concept book are to:
- Share current good practices as per several global companies
- Promote a more uniform application of the method and terminology
- Address human and organizational factors using modern ideas
- Avoid common errors
