Bow Tie Analysis Masterclass
Brief Description
The Bow Tie Analysis Masterclass provides you with a simplistic, proactive approach to the risk analysis process as applicable to the mining and related mineral resources industries. The course specifically touches on the strategic relevance of the Bow Tie Analysis, setting a scene to visually compare results from audits, accidents and incidents by monitoring risk identification activities through passive and active controls established during the process. During the course, you will be introduced to the relevant software to enhance your knowledge and skills in the principles of energy timelines, threats, consequences, escalating factors and the pathway to reduce major mishaps.
Learning Outcomes
After successfully completing this course, you will be able to understanding of BowTieXP terminology and application ability to arrange data within the software programme ability to define rules and guidelines for decision-making criteria to set a company risk appetite comprehension through identification of critical controls, the classification of roles and responsibilities for critical control management regime, interpretation of the Bow Tie Analysis diagram and report on effectiveness and vulnerability against the set criteria ability to breaking down the information into critical related components and seeing the relationships between accident causes, behaviour traits and Bow Tie threats and consequences ability to define the escalating factors which render controls ineffective and classify same into cognitive domains, material and equipment categories ability to develop critical control performance standards, verification and trigger action response plans (TARPs) based on acts, objects, systems with subsequent dependency and defence controls, and ability to use synthesis through deductive reasoning to assemble the diagram, design acceptance regimes, devise action plans, formulate results and propose more effective controls and barriers in a cost effective manner impacting on integrated objectives of risk management.
Course Content
The course consists of three modules and includes practical work with a software programme BowTieXP from CGE Risk Management Solutions in the Netherlands, to populate information and setting criterias for decision-making.The strategic context of the Bow Tie Analysis within the framework of risk management supported by visualisation material in a theatre will be used to set the scene for the learning programme. This module would be conducted in a lecture format where a card game simulating the software and based on pre-developed Bow Ties will enhance principles. From here onwards the learning takes place interactively between visual material, the software and virtual reality. Thus the next 3 modules dealing with Anatomy, definitions, risk appetite criterias, barriers effectiveness, critical control selection, performance standards and monitoring systems will be visual and interactive. Based on actual events visual case studies will be used to prospect simulated release mechanisms and consequences leading up to control failures and escalating factor contributions. The attendees will have to meet specific criterias to advance in the programme to the next module and evaluated on effectiveness of total Bow Tie Analysis, echoing the chief objective of the process from a scorecard. To achieve these objectives attendees will be exposed to the virtual reality interactive system, allowing trainees to select answers from a list and move them to the correct gap in the visual programme, simulating a drag and drop process. Feedback on their attempts, as well as the correct answers will be visualised.

Who Should attend:
Many a manager has found himself or herself in a position where risk decisions are taken without a formal systematic process. The need may arise at any management or supervision level and is dependent on the risk maturity of the company. However, it is recommended that the following persons attend, in specific those with legal appointments where ALARP (as low as reasonably practicable) is a requirement: Production and project managers. Engineers and subordinate engineers. Rock engineers and geotechnical managers. Mineral resource managers. Survey managers. Training managers. Metallurgical managers. Process managers. Risk and safety managers. Environmental managers. Occupational hygienists. Occupational medical practitioners. Community and social development managers. Any person in a managerial position involved with risk decisions.
