Operationalize Your Bowtie Risk Software
Complex systems constantly change and migrate toward states of higher risk on a daily basis. But these changes can be gradual and hidden. Impairments, startups, shutdowns, permitted and non-permitted maintenance activities, MoCs and more contribute to dynamic risk changes.
PHAs, HAZOPs, Bowtie risk assessments capture hazard-related information and identify needed controls and safeguarding barriers based on analysis at static intervals of time that could be months or years long. It would be time-consuming, expensive and difficult to manually capture changing situations on an ongoing basis.
Yet for the safety and resilience of operations, organizations must clearly understand equipment, process, and operational conditions that could contribute to an incident, accident or near-miss at any moment in time.
