    1 If using a „Generic‟ risk assessment, Assessors and Line Managers are to satisfy themselves that the assessment is valid for the task and that all significant hazards have
       been identified and assessed. If additional hazards are identified they are to be recorded and attached to the Generic assessment.

    2    Line Managers are to note that they are responsible for production of the risk assessment and that they are signing to indicate that the risk assessment is suitable and
         sufficient and they consider the risks to be acceptable.

         When recording the Risk Rating ensure that both the Likelihood and Consequence scores are included.

     High            Improve control measures or consider stopping work. Conducting work at this level of risk is to be reported up the Line Management / Command chain.
    Medium           Review control measures and improve if reasonably practicable to do so, consider alternative ways of working.
     Low             Maintain control measures and review if there are any changes.

4   Record the residual Risk Rating to demonstrate that the risk has been reduced to an acceptable level.

5   Risk Assessments are to be reviewed:
   Annually.
   If there is reason to doubt the effectiveness of the assessment.
   Following an accident or near miss.
   Following significant changes to the task, process, procedure or Line Management.
   Following the introduction of more vulnerable personnel.
   If “Generic” prior to use.
