Simple update to IEM Members or those who are practicing Engineering in MALAYSIA...
It has been a standard industrial practice to carry out hazard analysis for hazardous operations. However, accidents still happen and occasionally, the consequential losses are alarming. In many cases, the accidents could have been prevented if the hazard analysis had been more effectively completed or if the analysis findings (information pertaining the hazards and their controls) are communicated and hence, appreciated by everyone. In response to this, the Bowtie technique was invented and is being increasingly adopted in the oil & gas industry. It is simple and can be applied for all types of hazard such as fire/explosion, environmental pollution, work-related accidents, transportation accidents, security threat, health hazards and may others. It is suitable for other industries as well e.g. construction, fabrication, manufacturing, aviation, shipping etc. The Bow-tie technique emphasises on a pragmatic approach to identify not only hazard controls but also measures required to ensure the effectiveness of the identified controls. The overall findings are graphically presented in a bowtie-like skeleton that allows easy understanding and communication.
A talk on “The Bowtie Technique – Simple but Effective Approach to Hazard Analysis in Oil & Gas Industry”, organised by Oil, Gas and Mining Technical Division has been scheduled.
