Welcome to the Across Safety October 2017 newsletter

Hello and welcome to this second edition of our newsletter. 


As most of you know, we specialise in barrier based risk management and in particular the use of BowTie for risk analysis, auditing and occurrence investigation. If you’ve not come across this methodology before you can find out all about how it is used in the aviation industry either on our website or on the UK CAA website.


In this edition we’ll continue to provide tips and information on both the basic BowTie methodology as well as some specific ‘how to’ features for BowTieXP users. There’s also some dates for your calendar regarding upcoming events.


I’d also like to let you know about a BowTie User Group initiative that we are developing in conjunction with the UK CAA, and to invite your expressions of interest or opinions about this potential forum.


I hope that you find it informative and useful and welcome any feedback particularly if there are specific topics you would like to see articles on in the future. You can reach me directly via email at: avenetz@acrosssafety.com

BowTie Complete

BowTie provides a high quality and effective risk management tool but until now organisations wanting to use it have had to invest a significant amount of effort into getting it set up and running.


BowTie Complete is ideal for small to medium sized operations that want to benefit from using BowTie but don’t have the time, resources or budget to develop everything from scratch. It’s a solution that provides a set of pre-populated BowTies tailored to specific sectors of the aviation industry.
