Risk Level

Action and Timescale

 

Trivial

No action is required and documentary records need to be kept

 

TR
Tolerable

No additional controls are required. Consideration maybe be given to a more cost-effective solution or improvement that imposes no additional cost burden. Monitoring is required to ensure that the controls are maintained.

 

MR
Moderate

Efforts should be made to reduce the risk but costs of prevention should be carefully measured and limited. Risk reduction measures should be implemented within a defined time period. Where the moderate risk is associated with extremely harmful consequences, further assessment may be necessary to establish more precisely the likelihood of harm as a basis for determining the need for improved control measures.

 

SR
Substantial

Work should not be started until the risk has been reduced. Considerable resources may have to be allocated to reduce the risk. Where the risk involves work in progress urgent action should be taken.

 

IR
Intolerable

Work should not be started or continue until the risk has been reduced. If it is not possible to reduce the risk even with unlimited resources, work has to remain prohibited.
