Emergency response teams have to carry out difficult tasks not only in case of radiological incidents or radiation protection. They also have to make decisions with serious consequences. Visual, graphical process safety techniques such as Bow-Tie Analysis or Cause-Consequence-Analysis can be helpful in training as well as in resource planning. Barriers or safety precautions can be clearly displayed according to the Swiss-Cheese Model, or deficiencies can be identified.

For the safety and understanding of all parties involved and to improve effective help in case of danger.
