e-PSM 311: Introduction & Workshop to BowTie Analysis

7 Hours self-paced via TalentLMS
1/2 day LIVE e-Training with Trainer

As an introduction, this course provides training on the BowTie methodology of risk analysis that pictorially depicts causal relationship in high risk scenarios. It provides a visual representation of all likely incident scenarios around a hazard and identifies the controls that a company could use to control those scenarios. The participants will learn the fundamentals of the methodology with hands-on exercises.

For the 1/2 day workshop, the participant will work with hands-on examples and apply BowTie concepts with a PSRG Trainer. 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.  

Note: PSRG will provide a 30-day trial license of BowTieXP Advance for attendees’ practices.
