The logical conclusion is that high probability and high severity required significant action to lower both severity and probability, while low probability and low severity would likely not require any or very little corrective action. Well...

While this may be perceived as resource-intensive, it does provide a means to prioritize hazard and risk control areas and implement...

A risk assessment is different than a traditional ergonomic risk analysis approach because it factors in a calculated risk number based on the potential severity of an incident and probability of an incident. In addition, a traditional ergonomic analysis...

... (consequence) and probability (likelihood). A matrix is used to determine the risk based on the product of these two factors. Once of the challenges we face is that there is no one universal matrix. B11 uses a 4×4 matrix, Z10 a 4×5, and DoD a 5×4. Another key is the risk factor definitions. While terms like...
