Lab Safety / Lab Safety Management Certificate

Risk Assessing and Characterizing

Risk is a human construct helping us stay safe and alive. There is so much more to risk than the simple equation, risk equals severity times exposure times probability [R = S x E x P]. There are many tools and techniques to help us determine risk. One used in labs is called RAMP. We’ll explore all of this and more.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Define hazard, safety, and risk,
  • Explain a 2-level and a 3-level risk matrix,
  • Compare and contrast possibility vs. probability,
  • List at least five risk assessment methods or tools,
  • Describe the RAMP risk assessment method.
