Riskpoynt Barrier Model

The RiskPoynt Barrier Model is a tool for managing risk in complex industrial operations. The software provides a visual representation of how multiple barriers, or safety measures, can be activated to prevent incidents. By showing these barriers graphically alongside the risks they protect against, the model helps decision-makers understand how each barrier contributes to overall risk reduction and where potential weaknesses may lie. Its goal is to enhance operational safety performance through better identification of hazards and proactive management strategies. As part of the broader RiskPoynt platform — which also includes functionality like bowtie analysis — this specialized tool integrates with other modules for comprehensive risk management.
