RISK ASSESSMENT TEMPLATE

 

 

Risk Matrix and Rating Guidance:

The assessor shall assign values for the hazard severity (a) and likelihood of occurrence (b) (taking into account the frequency and duration of exposure) on a scale of 1 to 5, then multiply them together to give the rating band:

 

 

Hazard Severity (a)

Likelihood of Occurrence (b)

 
 
1 – Trivial       (e.g. discomfort, slight bruising, self-help recovery)

2 – Minor       (e.g. small cut, abrasion, basic first aid need)

3 – Moderate (e.g. strain, sprain, incapacitation > 3 days)

4 – Serious      (e.g. fracture, hospitalisation >24 hrs, incapacitation >4 weeks)

5 – Fatal         (single or multiple)

1 – Remote        (almost never)

2 – Unlikely      (occurs rarely)

3 – Possible       (could occur, but uncommon)

4 – Likely          (recurrent but not frequent)

5 – Very likely (occurs frequently)
