  • Use the above written summaries as a basis for your rating.
  • As shown in the scale, provide ratings for safety risk, infrastructure and costs, and other concerns; thus, each risk management option will have three ratings.
  • Use the rating system 1 = low concern, 2 = moderate concern, 3 = high concern.
