DETERMINING PROBABILITY / LIKELIHOOD GUIDANCE CRITERIA

If almost no gap exists in control of the identified Environmental Aspect / impact as technology, operational
1
Highly unlikely (HUL)
control, measurement monitoring, competence in place
2

Unlikely (UL)

If there is any minor gap / weakness in control of the identified Environmental Aspect / impact

Likely (L)

There are unreasonable/ major gaps in the control of the identified Environmental Aspect / impacts with respect
to adoption of technology, operational control, measurement monitoring and competence

Very likely (VL)

There are almost no control in place in controlling the identified Environmental Aspect / Impact

Consumption of Resources
Controls are well established with
effective bench-marking (No
opportunity for further reduction)
Controls are established however yet
an opportunity for improvement
(Random opportunity for further
reduction)
Controls are in place however largely
ineffective (Reasonable opportunity
for further reduction
No Control at all including Huge
Generation of waste (Substantial &
continual opportunity for further
reduction)

DEFINITION OF LEVEL OF IMPACTS

Impact
Level

Impact Level

Action and Time Scale

1,2,3

TRIVIAL

No action is required and no documentary record needs to be kept.

4,6

TOLERABLE

No additional controls are required. Consideration may be given to a more cost-effective solution or improvement
that imposes no additional cost burden. Monitoring is required to ensure that the controls are maintained.

8,9,12

SUBSTANTIAL

Work should not be started until the impact has been reduced. Considerable resources may have to be allocated
to reduce the impact where the impact involves work in progress, urgent action should be taken.

16

INTOLERABLE

Work should not be started or continued until the impact has been reduced. If it is not possible to reduce impact
even with unlimited resources, work has to remain prohibited.
