SECTION 6.0
PASSENGER SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENTS
RISK ASSESSMENTS – Passenger Safety
RATING EXPLANATION
The Ratings used for the purposes of the Risk Assessments recorded in this document are explained on each actual assessment sheet in Section 6.0
Each individual Rating was arrived at with the assistance of the individuals helping our Heath & Safety Consultant who led and conducted the risk
assessment exercises.
Risk Assessments Rating can also be represented in a graph as follows:
SEVERITY (S) 1 2 3 4
F
R
E
Q
U
E
N
C
Y
(F)
1 1 2 3 4
2 2 4 6 8
3 3 6 9 12
4 4 8 12 16
5 5 10 15 20
A phenomenon of the rating process is that Low risks can, on occasion, still merit sometimes significant remedial measures, whereas situations can
also arise where Normal (Medium) or High risks do not attract any suggestions for improvement.
here the balance appears obviously skewed an explanation will be presented (as indicated in Ink Colour Code earlier), but attention to
suggestions for improvement in already ‘low risk’ cases should not be ignored because of what may be a scoring ‘accident’, such suggestions will still
represent either best practice or legal requirement and are tendered for the benefit of the Company.
Probability Rating (P) with Guide Severity Rating (S) with Guide Risk Rating (RR) = Probability x Severity
1 = Improbable (hardly if ever) 1 = First Aid Injury 1 - 6 Low, Acceptable risk. Any remedial
2 = Remote (< annually) 2 = Minor injury (say 3 days off work) measures helpful rather than essential
3 = Possible (annually) 3 = Major injury 8 Normal risk. Implementation of
4 = Probable (monthly) 4 = Permanent incapacity or death additional practical remedial measures
5 = Likely (weekly) identified is strongly advised where this
would result in a reduction of risk
9 - 16 High risk. Implementation of additional
practical remedial measures is urgent and
essential
20 Unacceptable risk. Termination of
activity is recommended pending full
review
