 The order for implementing risk control measures with the most desirable being hazard elimination, the least desirable being the provision of PPE
             a. Elimination - remove the hazard completely during design or later;
             b. Substitution - replace with a less hazardous substance/ activity / process;
             c. Isolation / Engineering – measures to reduce exposure e.g. install guards on machinery, fume extraction, remote controls, automation, etc;
             d. Administration - signs and procedures for safe practices, training, supervision, etc;
             e. Personal protective equipment (PPE) - respirators, ear plugs, gloves, etc.

 Risk Level         Acceptability                                                Implications
 Very High        Intolerable            If the risk rating is “Very high”, then the activity should not proceed. An alternative
                                         safer method of work is required or additional controls based on the hierarchy of
                                         controls must be implemented to reduce the likelihood and/or consequence.
 High             Tolerable with         If the risk rating is “High”, review the risk controls and add additional controls to
                  continuous             reduce the risk level. A well documented system of work including standard
                  review                 operating procedures, training, monitoring and supervision is required.

                                         Continued exposure would only be considered in exceptional circumstances, and
                                         the decision to do so should be made at senior levels, after due consideration of the
                                         cost versus benefit. Any decision to continue the exposure to the risk must be
                                         subject to continuous review.
 Medium           Tolerable with         Exposure to the risk may continue provided it has been appropriately assessed, has
                  periodic review        been mitigated to As Low As Reasonably Practicable (ALARP), and is subject to
                                         periodic review to ensure the risk does not increase. It would be appropriate that
                                         measures to achieve long term further reduction to the risk be considered.
 Low              Acceptable with        Exposure to the risk is acceptable with periodic review to ensure the risk does not
                  periodic review        increase.
