Criteria: Consequence ( C ) Criteria: Likelihood ( L ) Risk Calculator Conclusions:
Negligible- Immediate return to work Improbable- So unlikely that it would not happen.
Risk level R= CxL Working on construction sites is a hazardous
Minor - First aid and return to work. Unlikely- Remote chance of event activity if the controls proposed are followed this
1-3 Acceptable environment can be successfully managed.
Moderate- Medical treatment/ lost time Possible- Inattention may cause an event to happen.
4-6 Moderate
Major- Multiple injuries and Probable- Highly likely without control. 8-12 Substantial Overall risk: Very High - High - Medium - Low
RIDDOR reportable
Certain- Will happen without Intervention/control. 15-25 Intolerable
Are risks reduced to ALARP (as low as
Fatal/Catastrophic- Death, loss of
installation reasonably practicable): Yes .
