RISK ASSESSMENT RATING MATRIX Use this table to determine the current risk for each identified hazard.LIKELIHOOD RareThe event will only occur in exceptional circumstances UnlikelyThe event is not likely to occur in a year PossibleThe event may occur within a year LikelyThe event is likely to occur within a year Almost certainThe event is almost certain to occur within a year CONSEQUENCE Severe/Catastrophic(Accidental death/serious injury) MEDIUM HIGH EXTREME EXTREME EXTREME Major(serious injury) MEDIUM MEDIUM HIGH EXTREME EXTREME Moderate(Lost time due to workplace injury) LOW MEDIUM HIGH HIGH HIGH Minor(Minor workplace injury –no lost time) LOW LOW MEDIUM MEDIUM MEDIUM Minimal(no injury) LOW LOW LOW LOW LOW RISK LEVELS Resolution at each level involves reducing the risk level to a lower level of risk Extreme – requires immediate assessment with management consideration.

Target resolution should ideally be within 3 monthsMedium – reviewing of existing controls and planning required.

Where a hazard could have multiple consequences (for example, injury and financial cost) the highest consequence should be selected.
