It might be that you just want to use BowTie as a risk analysis tool, that’s fine but bear in mind that it can play a very useful role in many aspects of safety management. You invest time and resources on assessing risk, why not maximize the potential safety benefits by integrating it into your SMS in other areas too?
In the paragraphs below, some suggested roles/functionalities are shown in italics.
The key SMS components:
a. Safety Policy and Objectives
b. Safety Risk Management
c. Safety Assurance
d. Safety Promotion
Obviously this isn't a definitive list though and there are many other ways in which to benefit from the use of a barrier based approach to risk management.
