Risk evaluation looks at the comparison from what has been perceived through risk analysis and compares those findings to pre-established criteria. It is through this comparison that the organisation decides about the prioritisation of the ‘perceived risk’. Some companies may decide that the risk has an extremely low impact on the company or its employees and has a likelihood of occurring on rare occasions, while other risks can have fatal consequences and have a moderate to a high likelihood of occurring. These risks are vital to rectify immediately. In Ambulance Practice, ‘perceived risk’ can be further disseminated to identify risks to the paramedic, their ability to respond to an emergency, other emergency responders, bystanders, and the patient.
