APPLICATION OF BOWTIE ANALYSIS IN ASSESSING THE RISK OF MAJOR HAZARDS IN THE MINING INDUSTRY

World Mining Congress
Bowtie analysis has recently emerged as a technique of choice that can be used when looking specifically at major hazards in the mining industry. A Bowtie diagram is a graphical means of assessment that focuses on identifying all the specific causes and consequences of major events, from which all the “pre-event” and “post-event” control measures can be identified. From this critical control measures can be identified and monitoring/assurance systems can be established.
