  • Bow Tie analysis is a risk assessment and management technique used in various industries to identify and visualize potential hazards and their consequences. It is particularly popular in high-risk industries such as oil and gas, aviation, healthcare, and nuclear power.


    The effectiveness of Bow Tie analysis lies in its application as a dynamic and iterative process for risk management. It provides a clear and visual representation of complex risk scenarios, making it easier for organizations to understand and manage potential threats.

  • By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

    • Define and explain the fundamental concepts of Bow Tie analysis, including hazards, top events, threats, consequences, and barriers.
    • Interpret and understand Bow Tie diagrams, recognizing the symbols, components, and relationships within the diagram.
    • Develop the skill to identify and articulate potential hazards and their corresponding top events within a given scenario or system.
    • Demonstrate the ability to identify various threats that could lead to the top event and recognize existing and potential barriers.
    • Evaluate the effectiveness of existing barriers in preventing the realization of threats and the occurrence of the top event.
    • Apply the Bow Tie analysis methodology to a real or simulated scenario, from hazard identification to barrier enhancement recommendations.
    • Emphasize the importance of regular updates and reviews of Bow Tie analyses to ensure relevance and effectiveness in risk mitigation.
  • Training will be conducted via Microsoft Team Meeting, online. Meeting invites will be shared on the day before the first day of training.

  • This is a two-day course from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM (Dubai Time)

    • Presentation Slides
    • Training Recordings
