PROCEDURES:

1. Identify potential hazards which could reasonably be expected to result in significant harm

2. Identify who might be harmed

3. Consider existing controls - is the risk of significant harm low/ highly unlikely, medium/ unlikely or high/ likely

4. Where the risk is identified as harmful or extremely harmful, identify the action required

5. If the risk is minimal or tolerable, further precautions are optional and the activity may proceed

6. Where the risk is moderate, it is desirable that further precautions are taken before the activity proceeds

7. If the risk is substantial, it is essential that the activity does not proceed until the risk has been significantly reduced

8. If the risk is intolerable, the activity must not proceed.

RISK RATING = Severity of Harm X Likelihood of Occurrence

NB. Tolerable here means that risk has been reduced to the lowest level that is reasonably practicable.
