Abstract

The paper shows how the BowTie offers a framework for the digital transformation of safety management systems. The BowTie introduces opportunities for digital transformation on three system levels: barrier system, hazard system and the system management system in its entirety. A concise explanation shows that each of these levels requires different knowledge from safety experts and IT experts alike. The paper includes an insight into the benefits of digital transformation. The case is a transformation on the second level (a hazard system) which is focussed on a railway risk. The work is equally applicable to process safety and all methods are transferrable. This work demonstrates how big-data techniques can add value to chemical safety and paves the way to the widespread introduction of digital safety management systems in the process industries.
