Certain to Occur Expected to occur in most circumstances Very Likely Will probably occur in most circumstances Possible Might occur occasionally Unlikely Could happen some time Rare May happen only in exceptional circumstances Actions Required Risk Level Rating Required Action Critical Immediate action needed . Access to the hazard should be restricted until the risk can be lowered to an acceptable level. Short term action may be required to lower the risk level and then medium and long term plans to control the risk to as low as reasonably practicable using the Hierarchy of Controls. High Action needed quickly (within 1-2 days). The task should not proceed unless the risk is assessed and control options selected based on the Hierarchy of Controls. Moderate Action required this week to eliminate or minimise the risk using the Hierarchy of Controls. Low Action required within a reasonable timeframe (2-4 weeks) to eliminate or minimise the risk using the Hierarchy of Controls. Very Low Risk to be eliminated or lowered when possible using the Hierarchy of Controls. St e p 3 : Contro l li n g R i s k s Once a risk rating is determined, each hazard must have its existing risk control measures evaluated using the Evaluation of Control Effectiveness Table. This allows for determination of any additional requirement necessary. Evaluation of Control Effectiveness Table Part 2 hazard identification, assessment control of risks

Step 4: Implement additional risk controls Having identified the hazards in your workplace, assessed their risks and reviewed the existing controls, all hazards must be managed before people are hurt, become ill or there is damage to plant, property or the environment. The management of risks in the workplace requires eliminating risks so far as reasonably practicable in the first instance. W here elimination is not possible, and then risks should be minimised, so far as reasonably practicable. All hazards that have been assessed should be dealt with in order of priority. The most effective control option/s should be selected to eliminate or minimise risks. The Hierarchy of Controls ranks control options from highest level of protection and reliability to lowest. This should be used to determine the most effective control/s.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
