We are delighted to announce that we have been appointed as a Value Added Partner 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, so this appointment marks an important stage in how we help clients apply the technique.
Being a Value Added Partner for CGE Risk 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.
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.
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.
When a driver left his tram to investigate a problem with the power supply, an unfortunate error led to considerable damage. The driver had left the tram in 'on' mode, so when the power problem disappeared the now driverless tram set off on its own. To see the full story, read the story on the Rush Lane and the Times of India's websites.
Eliminating the potential for errors like this is normally common practice, but much of Calcutta's tram system is now very old. Nevertheless, this accident should raise concerns about many human factors issues including task design, training and competence and procedural controls as well as risk management.
Great to see (and travel on) Edinburgh's Trams with passengers on board. Well done to everyone involved!
See the BBC's coverage of the first day of operations here.
Edinburgh Trams is a project we've been involved with for quite a while - great to see trams finally running into the city centre.
