Course Objectives

What will this course do?

Bow Tie is a popular method for aviation organisations that are being proactive in analysing their hazards and evaluating the controls they have in place. However, like all methodologies, it is in the effective application that most benefit can be realised. Endorsed by CGE Risk Management Solutions (developers of BowTieXP), this advanced training course is aimed at helping you to effectively manipulate BowTieXP software to produce your own Bow Ties. Uniquely, this training course is set within the aviation context, using exemplars that derive directly from the aviation community.

What will I learn?

By the end of this course you will understand:

  • Bow Tie construction - how to create the basic shape and structure
  • How to assign greater fidelity to barriers (including barrier effectiveness, barrier types and barrier adequacy).
  • The importance of ownership and measurement of barrier effectiveness as part of your risk management framework
  • Linkages to core processes and documents, including audit findings
Benefits of attending – for you and your organisation

You will know how to:

  • Demonstrate a confident Bow Tie as part of your risk assurance and governance structure
  • Use Bow Tie to embed risk management throughout your organisational layers
  • Produce dynamic Bow Ties that can contribute to your organisation’s safety performance measurement
  • Effectively use the BowTieXP Software, creating Bow Ties faster and more accurately
Who is it aimed at?
This course is aimed at team members who are responsible for constructing and developing Bow Ties.
