1 INSTRUCTIONS FOR USING RISK ASSESSMENT TEMPLATE When completing a risk management assessment focus your thoughts on three critical areas: 1. People 2. Environment 3. Equipment Step 5 Complete Section 3 Emergency Response Plan Step 6 Transfer the information from Section 2 into Section 4 which is a summary of your Risk Assessment and forms the Risk Management plan. Your plan can then be shared with the appropriate people. Step 1 Using Section 2; Identify the tasks and; Identify the hazards associated with the activity or event List them in the first 2 columns Step 2 Read tables 1,2,3 below to work out the likelihood of the hazard occurring the consequence of the hazard occurring the risk rating of the hazard Firstly, work out the likelihood using table 1 and reading the statements and deciding the most appropriate likelihood; Secondly, work out the consequences of the risk using the consequences rating in table 2 Thirdly, using the Risk rating table (table 3) see what risk rating your likelihood and consequences shows. Record it under step 2 column on your template. Step 3 Work out what the best control measure is to reduce the risk of your hazard. Record in controls in your step 3 column on your template. Step 4 Repeat step 2 and see if your risk rating has reduced to a level you are happy to run your activity with. Record your rating in your step 4 column of your template.

2 Risk Assessment and Plan - Outdoor Activities, Events & Camps TABLE 1 Likelihood Rating Table TABLE 2 Consequence Rating Table CONSEQUENCE DESCRIPTION LIKELIHOOD Almost Certain Likely Possible Unlikely Rare DESCRIPTION The event is expected to occur in most circumstances. (At least 5 times a year) The event will probably occur in most circumstances. The event will probably occur in most circumstances. (Twice a year) The event might (or could) occur at some time. (Once a year) The event will probably not occur. (Once in five years) The event may only occur in exceptional circumstances. (Hasn t happened yet) Insignificant Minor Moderate Major Catastrophic ``````````````TABLE 3 Risk Analysis Matrix level Impact with negligible consequences on the aim or activity objectives that can be controlled by routine management procedures (no injuries, negligible financial Loss or disruption to non-essential infrastructure/data). The consequences would threaten the efficiency or effectiveness of achieving some aspects of the organisation s aim or activity objectives, requiring management effort to minimise Impact (minimal financial Loss, injuries requiring first aid only, minor political Impact or disruption to non-essential infrastructure/data). A significant/medium potential of affecting the achievement of the organisation s aim or activity objectives (moderate financial Loss or political Impact, injuries requiring medical treatment only, medium term Loss of some essential infrastructure/data). A very high potential to impair the achievement of the organisation s aim or activity objectives (major financial Loss or political Impact, significant occupational, health, safety and welfare incident/s, long term Loss of some critical infrastructure/data). An extreme potential to threaten the sustainability of the organisation or its aims and activities (huge financial Loss or political Impact, very serious occupational health, safety and welfare incident/s, permanent Loss of critical infrastructure/data). CONSEQUENCES what is the maximum reasonable consequence? LIKELIHOOD RATING Insignificant Minor Moderate Major Catastrophic Almost Certain Moderate High Catastrophic Catastrophic Catastrophic Likely Moderate High High Catastrophic Catastrophic Possible Moderate High Catastrophic Catastrophic Unlikely Moderate High Catastrophic Rare Moderate High High TABLE 4 Hierarchy of Control You may like to use the Hierarchy of Control table to help you work out the best control for your risks. Start at level 1 for the most effective way of reducing your hazard and work your way down until you are happy that you have controlled your risk. Level 1 Most effective Elimination In this case the hazard or risk is eliminated by changing/stopping the process entirely. Level 2 Substitution The hazard is replaced by a process or material that presents a lower risk. Engineering Controls/ Isolation This method of risk reduction involves engineering changes that effectively isolate or reduce the hazard. Level 3Least Effective Administrati ve Controls Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) These controls rely on developing safe procedures and work methods. PPE is worn as a barrier between the person and the hazard. To be effective PPE needs to be properly chosen, maintained and used. PPE is generally considered the least effective control measure because it is the last line of defence. If the worker does not wear it, or wears it incorrectly, they are fully exposed to the risk.

If the risk is deemed unacceptable for the task, what will be done to reduce or remove the risk? By whom? By when?
