Severity value = potential consequence of an incident/injury

5 Very High Death / permanent incapacity / widespread loss


4 High Major Injury (Reportable Category) / Severe Incapacity / Serious Loss
3 Moderate Injury / illness of 3 days or more absence (reportable category) / Moderate loss
2 Slight Minor injury / illness – immediate First Aid only / slight loss
1 Negligible No injury or trivial injury / illness / loss

Likelihood value = what is the potential of an incident or injury occurring

5 Almost certain to occur


4 Likely to occur
3 Quite possible to occur
2 Possible in current situation
1 Not likely to occur
SEVERITY
risk rating = severity value × likelihood value 1 2 3 4 5

risk ratings are classified as low (1 – 5), medium (6 – 9) and high (10 – 25) 1 Low Low Low Low Low

Risk Classification and Actions:

LIKELIHOOD
2 Low Low Medium Medium High
Rating Classification Action

1–5 Low Tolerable risk - Monitor and Manage

6–9 Medium Review and introduce additional controls to mitigate to 4 Low Medium High High High
“As Low As Reasonably Practicable” (ALARP)
5 Low High High High High
10 – 25 High Stop work immediately and introduce further control measures
