A picture says more than a thousand words! Risks can only be effectively managed when they are truly understood. So how can we improve the way people understand and communicate risks, especially when the hazards are major? Bow Tie diagrams can illustrate complex risks in an understandable diagram, so are a powerful tool that we can use alongside our traditional hazard analysis methods.
