Any measure taken which acts against some undesirable force or intention, in order to maintain a desired state.
Usually there will already be numerous ways in which you seek to prevent the top event from occurring.
The addition of these controls to the bowtie is the next step. The controls would look at two aspects of threat management:
eliminating the threat completely, therefore making sure the threat is not present and
preventing the threat from developing into a top event if the threat does become “live”.
In the example of driving a car on a busy motorway, to eliminate our threat of a tyre blow out, the car owner would conduct regular tyre inspections to identify any potential issues which might lead to a tyre blow out. If our threat becomes “live” and a tyre blow out occurs, our preventative control could be driver steering into the skid to keep control.
See Recovery controls for more additional guidance relevant to prevention controls.
