In mathematical term, riskcan be calculated by the equation –Risk = Likelihood x Severity, where Likelihood is an event likely to occur within the specific periodor in specified circumstances and, Severity is outcome from an event such as severity of injury orhealth of people, or damage to property, or insult toenvironment, or any combination of those caused by the event.

Slide 8TechnoSysCon . . . . . . preferred partner for sustainable systemsQuestion ?Will exposure to hazards in the workplace always causeinjury, illness or other adverse health effects?Not necessarily.To answer this question, you need to know: what hazards are present, how a person is exposed (route of exposure, as wellas how often and how much exposure occurred), what kind of effect could result from the specificexposure a person experienced, the risk (or likelihood) that exposure to a hazardousthing or condition would cause an injury, or diseaseor some incidence causing damage, and how severe would the damage, injury or harm(adverse health effect) be from the exposure.
