Process Safety

Process Safety Cards aim to improve the awareness of a broad range of personnel to potential Major Accident scenarios and increase their vigilance to such events & their potential causes so they can be promptly addressed.

We do that with memorable images representing typical events – delivering knowledge literally into the hands of those who might contribute to and/or be affected by Process Safety Incidents.

With an ageing workforce and increased outsourcing of maintenance and operations activities, it is vital that time and knowledge poor stakeholders (who typically fall outside corporate process safety training strategies) are engaged and equipped to ensure they play their part in sustaining the integrity of assets.

Hazards are not the enemy – they are part of normal business with the potential to cause harm e.g. tiger or gorilla in a cage.


Cards provide simple visual prompts to help “players” remember that the event (Loss of Containment) is an ever-present concern.

We offer a number of different decks associated with Process Safety topics:

Loss of Containment
Process Safety Management
Process Safety Fundamentals

There’s also an intelligently illustrated deck created by Rachael Cowin which provides both a Cautionary (Hazards) and Precautionary (Controls) suit with a separate card for each letter of the alphabet.

Process Safety Alphabet


Although the cards are designed to be intuitive, they are annotated with Event types which can be supplied in different languages or alternative terminologies.

Details of scenario components are provided on the Bowties page.
