Frequency Frequency measures the number of losses in a given period over the number of exposures to loss. If Sharon Steel Corp. had 10,000 employees in each of the last five years… And, there were 1,500 injuries over the 5-year period… Then, the loss frequency would be 0.03 = 1500/50,000 employee-years.

Severity Severity measures the magnitude of loss per occurrence. If the 1,500 injuries cost a total of $3,000,000… Then, the expected severity of loss would be $2,000.

Expected Loss The Expected Loss is simply the product of the frequency and the severity Expected loss = Frequency x Severity In our example, the Expected Loss equals $60 0.03 x $2,000 = $60 Also known as the “pure premium”
