## Risk matrix

The risk matrix defines the probability and the possible effects of an accident at work in two coordinates. A coordinate is defined in the matrix for each hazard in the hazard catalogue. Selecting applicable hazards in a risk assessment results in a measure of the hazardousness of the work to be carried out. The coordinate for the initial risk results from the highest value of the selected hazards.

## Residual risk calculation

By selecting protective measures for each relevant hazard, the probability and/or impact of an accident at work is reduced. The aim is to use a suitable combination of measures to achieve a level of occupational safety that enables work to be carried out safely. The software automatically calculates a residual risk from the selected hazards and measures and marks this in the risk matrix. This residual risk calculation helps you to assess whether a job can be carried out safely in compliance with all defined health and safety measures.
