Perth-based RPS Principal Consultant for Safety & Risk Phil McKenzie was recently presented with a Lifetime Achievement Award from software partner CGE Risk Management Solutions at the CGE Industry Awards 2012 in the Netherlands.
The award recognises Phil’s outstanding achievement in educating and promoting barrier based risk management methods. The Lifetime Achievement Awards are awarded to a select number of people who have played an important role in the acceptance of barrier based methods in various industries and on various continents.
Phil has established a comprehensive technical standard and training program on how to conduct BowTie analysis, aimed at the offshore drilling industry. The technical standard and training are based on his research program, incorporating information from relevant industry and academic material.
"When we elected to adopt the BowTie analysis approach to Safety Case development as described in the IADC HSE Case Guidelines, I realised that there were little to no standards available either in the industry or academia. I wanted to describe how this methodology should be applied in practice. I therefore embarked on a research program to incorporate the best available information in this area from relevant industry and academic material. This way, we established a comprehensive technical standard on how to conduct BowTie analysis."
"To ensure a consistent approach within our worldwide offices, I subsequently provided training and technical mentoring to our offices around the world on this standard BowTie analysis approach" Phil said.
