Risk Identification and Risk Matrix


Step 1 Determine the likelihood What is the possibility of the event happening?
Criteria
Description
Almost
Certain

Expected in most situations

Event is a common problem

Likely

Will probable occur in most situations

Event is known to have occurred at


this site or has happened

Possible

Might occur in some situations

Event could occur at the site or Ive


heard of it happening

Unlikely

Could occur in some situations

Event is not likely to occur at the


site or I have not heard of it
happening

Rare

May occur, only in exceptional circumstances

Event is practically impossible

Step 4 Record Risk Score Against the Job Sequence Steps

Step 2 Determine Consequence What will be the result if it happens?


Example of Detail Description

No Injuries
Minor

Where elimination of the risk is not reasonably practicable, the Hierarchy of


Control outlines the order in which the hazards are to be controlled. A
combination of controls is often required to minimise the risk to the lowest
level reasonably practicable if no single measure is sufficient for that purpose.
