We are delighted to announce that we have been awarded the Level 2 certification in Bowtie risk assessment practice by CGE Risk, the leading provider of barrier-based risk management solutions.
We have been using the bowtie methodology for several years with railway, metro, tram, fire & rescue and social care clients as well as with voluntary organisations, so this award marks an important stage in how we help clients apply the technique. Although the basic concept of a bowtie is not very complicated to understand and interpret, building a proper bowtie model that can be used effectively to manage risks takes good practice and experience. The Level 2 award shows that CGE Risk has verified that we have been trained in risk and incident analysis methods as well as the application of these in their software solutions.
We are a Value Added Partner for CGE Risk - this allows us to provide a complete solution for the bowtie risk assessment methodology; helping you to understand and apply the methodology and also provide and implement CGE’s specialist software for producing excellent bowties.
If you are looking for consultancy (applying the bow tie technique to your business risks), training in the methodology and/or the software or advice on how to scope or purchase software then please contact us.

Our customised accident investigator training received some great feedback this week. One delegate from Ainscough Crane Hire Ltd said "This was a fantastic course - really very helpful indeed".
The two-day course is well-paced, encouraging all delegates to be actively involved through group exercises and realistic case studies that apply to their working environment. Our Investigator Handbook and materials for event and causal factor analysis are particularly well-received.
All our accident investigation training is tailored to suit your sector; we will work with you to create relevant case studies and where possible we will use your accident reporting documentation (accident reports and investigation report templates or forms) during the training.
We have now delivered this training for rail, tram, bus, social care, engineering, retail and construction organisations.
See our accident investigation training pages for more information, or contact us to discuss how we might work with you.
