e-PSM 311-2: Workshop for BowTie Analysis

Duration: 9 AM-4 PM

Course Description:

In this course, the participant will work with hands-on examples and apply BowTie concepts presented in the Introduction to BowTie Analysis course.  This course will use CGE’s BowTieXP software for implementing BowTie Analysis. Participants are encouraged to send their own examples ahead of time if possible so that a BowTie Analysis can be developed for an example that they are familiar with.  Participants without any prior experience with the BowTie methodology should first attend the Introduction to BowTie Analysis e-Training course which also provides the trial license for the CGE’s BowTieXP software.

Course Benefits:

  • Learn how to implement BowTie with different examples
  • Learn how to use BowTieXP when implementing BowTie Analysis for Process Hazard Analysis
  • Introduce use of BowTieXP for incident and other risk assessments

Who Should Attend?:

  • Experienced PHA Leaders/Scribes and PSM Coordinators and Managers
  • Operations, Safety and Project Managers; Process and Safety Engineers
