Likelihood

Severity











The likelihood is related to the potential for a risk to occur over an annual evaluation cycle.
The severity of a risk refers to the degree of loss or damage which may result from its’ occurrence.










Table 1: Likelihood Scale

Table 2: Severity Scale


Rating LIKELIHOOD

Rating  POTENTIAL IMPACT 


The potential for problems to occur in a year

  In terms of the objectives of the organisation 


A  ALMOST CERTAIN: Will probably occur, could occur several times per year

A  CATASTROPHIC:  Most objectives may not be achieved, or several severely affected


B  LIKELY: High probability, likely to arise once per year 

B  MAJOR:  Most objectives threatened, or one severely affected 


C  POSSIBLE: Reasonable likelihood that it may arise over a five-year period 

C  MODERATE:  Some objectives affected, considerable effort to rectify 


D  UNLIKELY: Plausible, could occur over a five to ten year period 

D  MINOR:  Easily remedied, with some effort the objectives can be achieved


E  RARE: Very unlikely but not impossible, unlikely over a ten year period 

E  NEGLIGIBLE:  Very small impact, rectified by normal processes 




















Having assessed each risk in terms of its likelihood and severity we are in a position to prioritise the risks to assist in the decision making of what action is warranted to manage the risks (where possible).











Risk Priority















The risk priority scale determines the nature of the risk and the action required.  They are indicators to assist in the decision making of what action is warranted for the risks.
