Residual risk is the remaining risk that exists after all additional controls have been implemented or exhausted. During the periodic review of a risk assessment, this residual risk can be merged to become the actual risk rating, moving the additional controls into the existing control description whilst leaving an audit trail of the initial risk value.
1. Select the Hazard you want to merge the Residual Risk score.
2. Click MERGE RESIDUAL RISK.
6. This will now show your new existing controls. Click MERGE.
