Risk Matrix – use this to determine risk for each hazard i.e. how bad and how likely

Likelihood of Harm
Unlikely Possible Likely Probable
Severity of Harm
Negligible e.g. small bruise Very low Very low Low Low
Slight e.g. small cut, deep bruise Very low Low Low Medium
Moderate e.g. deep cut, torn muscle Low Medium Medium High
Severe e.g. fracture, loss of consciousness Medium High High Extremely high
Very Severe e.g. death, permanent disability Medium High Extremely high Extremely high

crowd disorder/ Public
personal violence Contractors Lone operators will not work in areas where
and personal safety violence is foreseeable

Where necessary a secure area has been designated


for staff/students to locate too

Movement confined to well-populated areas and


supervised at all times

Activities will be undertaken during daylight hours

Groups’ supervisors all have working mobile
