Action to reduce the risk should be given top priority with senior management involvement. If the risk cannot be reduced, work should be stopped

Medium Cost-effective risk control measures should be implemented to reduce the risk to a level that is ALARP within a reasonable time.
Low The risk is considered acceptable and no additional risk control action is normally required. Cost-effective risk control measures may be implemented to further reduce the risk with lowest priority.
