As we proceed through a normal day we expect to encounter a certain amount of hazards. Most of these present low level risks and most are subject to control systems that are already in place and active. Just the same, we should pay attention to these as they occur (and whenever possible in advance). One of the tools that I have championed is the risk assessment. The risk assessment may be applied at the field level (FLRA – Field Level Risk Assessment), at the institutional level (ERA – Enterprise Risk Assessment) and at various levels in between. A risk rating at any application level is a function of the likelihood that an event might occur, and the impact of the consequence of that event.
