The Risk Matrix or Table of Overall Risk


The Risk Matrix is a useful tool in the assessment of the severity of overall risk. It is intended to allow the relationship between the likelihood of incident/injury occurring and the possible severity of outcome. By comparing these two factors against each other, a Risk Rating can be arrived at, employing a scale between A (highest risk) and E (lowest risk). Risk Likely Rating, on a scale of A to E (A being the highest)

Likely severity of outcome Frequent Probable

Explanation of severity of outcome (For definitions and full list of inclusions, refer to the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrence Regulations (RIDDOR) 1995): Fatal - any fatal injuries to employees, or any other person, sustained in an accident connected with your business Major - any injury that includes: Fracture of the skull, spine, pelvis, any bone in the arms or legs (but not in the hand or foot). Amputations of the hand or foot, or of a finger, thumb or toe where the bone or joint is severed. Loss of sight in an eye, or a penetrating injury, chemical / hot burn to the eye.

Electric shock resulting in loss of consciousness and / or medical treatment. Acute illness or loss of consciousness resulting from absorption, inhalation or ingestion of a substance. Any other injury requiring hospitalisation for more than 24 hours. Minor - any other injury to an individual that results in absence from work, or an inability to carry out their normal work, for more than 3 days. Non-Reportable - any injury or discomfort that does not cause more than 3 days disablement, or permanent damage. Note: Ill Health, i.e. loss of hearing, respiratory illness, dermatitis etc. should be rated on their likely severity.
For each section of the Risk Assessment Record form above, it is recommended that the assessor(s) refer to the notes below for an outline of the main requirements of the questions: Activity or Process - Basically you are required to state the physical nature of the activity. This can either be a generic activity such as booking out kit, or a more specific activity such as filming in a moving car or other more specialised activities; so if necessary try to describe it as best as possible. For example: erection and use of lights in living room for fight scene. Nature of Hazard? - Concentrate upon things that could cause harm, not trivial things like flaky paintwork! Consult the people who use the area as they may have a different perspective to you. Do not rely solely upon others however, as they have become blinkered to certain hazards through daily exposure to them. Who may be at risk? - Identify types / groups and numbers of people, and perhaps individuals. It could be crew in general, or more specific groups such as cast or guest interviewees who are not familiar with the location. Degree of risk - Compare the likely outcome (worst case scenario if you like) against the likelihood of it occurring (unlikely through to frequent). Award a rating from A (high) down to E (very low). Refer to the Risk Matrix above for risk rating. Preventive (Existing Control Measures) - Identify the measures already in place and ask yourself if they are sufficient to eliminate or reduce the risk to the lowest possible degree? It is not always possible to entirely eliminate a hazard, as they are often intrinsic to a piece of equipment (such as a tungsten light) or an activity (such as driving). Preventive (Further Measures Required) - Is there a possibility of circumstances arising that could lead to additional unforeseen risk? If so, how could these be pre-empted and addressed before they cause harm? If change is planned, what associated hazards could arise? Could adverse weather conditions or a sudden influx of people result in additional hazards? If Accident Occurs it is essential that plans are in place if any accident occurs, whether it be fatal, major, minor, or even some non-reportable outcomes. This would normally take the form of having a record of emergency numbers of cast and crew, contacting the college and the media department, and calling the emergency services as required.
