Work Health and Safety (WHS) General Risk Assessment Tool

This Risk Assessment tool is to be completed by the site manager in consultation with affected workers to determine the risk control/s required to
manage general work health and safety risks.
Use this document to identify the level of risk and help to prioritise the implementation of risk controls. Using the Risk Assessment Matrix for Work
Health and Safety (WHS) Risks over the page, consider the consequences and likelihood for each identified hazard to determine the risk rating.
After the identification of risk control/s reassess the risk to determine the residual risk level.
Refer to the Hazard Management Procedure for further details.

Hierarchy of Risk Control

The ways of controlling risks are ranked from the highest level of protection and reliability to thelowest
as shown below. This ranking is known as the Hierarchy of Risk Control. The WHS Regulations require
duty holders to work through this hierarchy when managing risk.
