5 x 5 Risk Matrix
Risk Management - Sample 5 x 5 Risk Assessment Matrix.
5 x 5 Likelihood v Severity
There are several versions of the likelihood v severity descriptions, and the below is just one of the more common versions.
Risk Rating is calculated by multiplying the likelihood against the consequences, e.g. taking a likelihood of 4, which is classified as Probable, and multiplying this against a consequence of 2, which is classified as a Minor Injury 1st aid required, would give you and overall risk rating of 8, which would be risk rated as a low risk. High risk equals 16 to 25. High Risks activities should cease immediately until further control measures to mitigate the risk are introduced. Medium risk equals 9 to 15. Medium Risks should only be tolerated for the short-term and then only whilst further control measures to mitigate the risk are being planned and introduced, within a defined time period. Note: Medium risks can be an organisations greatest risk, it's Achilles heel, this due to the fact that they can be tolerated in the short-term. Low risk equals 1 to 8. Low Risks are largely acceptable, subject to reviews periodically, or after significant change etc...
