RSK80003 Risk Perception and Analysis

Choose a situation with which you are familiar, preferably work-related. Following the

guidance given in the notes, establish a comprehensive risk register for that situation including

both energy and non-energy Threats. Explain your overall thinking. A table is a good way to

list entries. Provide a brief description or explanation of the entries. [15]

b) In the notes some examples are given of possible qualities of individual risk register entries.

Consider these, or others you may feel more relevant to the entries you have and add at least

two of them to your risk register and show how they are relevant to each of the entries. [5]

c) Read the case study appended. In the context of the Module 3 notes, consider how you would

go about justifying the expenditure of $600,000 on the provision of intrinsically safe electrical

equipment in the mine. [20] 


Decide on a set of parameters you will use to enable you to distinguish the relative significance

of the entries in your risk register. Justify your selection. Establish a Nominal and a related

Ordinal scale suited to each of these parameters. A good Nominal scale is one that is not

ambiguous - each item in the scale is clearly different from the others. Use these on each

entry in your risk register. Decide on a suitable algorithm to enable a single Ordinal number to

be determined for each register entry and list the Risks in ranker number order. [15]

b) Select the most significant risk derived as above and develop a set of risk factors for it. Justify

your choice of factors. For each of the factors, develop both a Nominal and an associated

Ordinal scale. [15] 


i. Define the appropriate Event and draw, with brief written explanation, a Mechanism

analysis logic diagram for the coal mine case study below. [15 marks]

ii. If you were to draw an Outcome Analysis (aka Event Analysis) for this case, what would

the questions be on which the analysis diagram was based? [7 marks]

iii. Draw an Outcome Analysis diagram for the case based on those questions. [8 marks]
