What is Barrier Modelling?

Barrier modelling is a visual way of presenting the possible causes that could lead to a hazard developing into an undesirable event. Barrier modelling presents the possible effects of this happening and the barriers that either reduce the likelihood of the event occurring, or reduce the impact of the event should it happen.

Course Overview

The overall aim of this course is to prepare delegates for the upcoming changes to ICAO Annex 13 (Amendment 17) which refers to the classification of serious incidents and how remaining barriers between the event and an undesirable outcome were left intact need to be considered.

The course provides delegates with a context of how barrier models can be used. Delegates will explore a series of techniques that can be applied to create barrier models together with best practice guidelines on how to structure and maintain a barrier model.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for anyone who requires a generic overview of barrier modelling in the aviation context.

Key topics

This training course will include the following topics:

  • Introduction to Barrier Models
  • Barrier Model Applications
  • Creating a Barrier Model
  • Maintaining a Barrier Model

Course objectives

By the end of this course, delegates will demonstrate knowledge of the following through group discussion and syndicate exercises:

  • Understand the concept of barrier modelling as outlined in ICAO Annex 13 Amendment 17
  • Present an overview of different barrier modelling techniques (e.g. SIRA and Bowtie)
  • The role of barrier modelling plays in risk management
  • Best practice when creating an effective barrier model
  • How barrier models can be used to create meaningful Safety Performance Indicators (SPIs)


Delegates should have a basic knowledge of Safety Management Systems.
