BOWTIE RISK ASSESSMENTS
You’ve probably seen or heard of the hierarchy of control at some point in your travels, but this inverted triangle really is foundational to health & safety risk management – and it’s even more powerful when we apply it to the BowTie risk assessment!
When we use the hierarchy of controls in the BowTie, we not only see those controls that prevent an incident from occurring, but we can see which controls are ‘high order’ controls – most effective at preventing incidents.
This makes the BowTie an incredibly useful tool for business leaders to demonstrate that they are allocating resources where they are most effective.
So that is the focus of today. I’m going to wrap up this 2-part series by showing you how to apply the hierarchy of controls to a BowTie risk assessment which will ultimately give you a better understanding of where to target your resources and improve your monitoring and assurance activities.
So, let’s get started…
