How do you perform a BowTie analysis?

  1. Identify the risk to be examined in the bow-tie analysis. Typically used for high risks events (i.e. the MAH of the facility) that are expected to have a high level of consequence.
  2. Identify the events that can cause the hazard (MAH) to occur.
  3. Identify and list down the causes and the consequences to the hazard on the left and right of the hazard respectively.
  4. List down existing controls on the causes (preventive controls) below the causes on the left, and the controls on the consequences (corrective/mitigative controls) below the consequences on the right.
  5. Optionally, rank the risk to each consequence of the hazard.
  6. Identify any potential event that could cause escalation to the failure of each control/barrier.
