5   Dying or being permanently disabled    5   Will almost certainly happen              16–25 Stop! Do not start activity again until risk is controlled
4   Serious injury/long-term illness       4   Highly likely to happen                   10-15 High risk level, High priority. Take action straight away
3   Temporary disability/3 days off sick   3   Not so likely                                   to control the risk
2   Will need medical attention            2   Even less likely                           6-9  Medium risk level. Tighten up controls and make a
1 Minor injury eg bruise, graze                  1 Unlikely to happen at all                      plan to do something about risk
