  1. Extremely unlikely 2. Unlikely 3. Possible 4. Probable 5. Highly Likely
1. Minor Injury Not significant Not significant Not significant Not significant Not significant
2. Less than 3 day injury Not significant Not significant Low Low Low
3. 3 day Injury Plus Not significant Low Low Medium Medium
4. Major Injury Not significant Low Medium High High
5. Death Not significant Low Medium High Extreme
Formula: Likelihood x Severity = Risk Rating
e.g. Likelihood of 2 (unlikely) x Severity of 3 (3 day+ injury) = 6 or a Risk Rating of 'LOW'
Where the initial risk rating is 11 or more, this should be reduced to a lower means practicable through implementation of control measures
