OPERATIONAL RISK
MANAGEMENT

Substep A
Leaders and staffs assess each hazard in relation to the
probability of a hazardous incident. The probability levels
estimated for each hazard may be based on the mission,
COAs being developed and analyzed, or frequency of
a similar event. Figure 2-2 provides a summary of the
fi ve degrees of probability. The letters in parentheses
following each degree (A through E) provide a symbol for
depicting probability. For example, the letter A represents
frequent probability.

Substep B
Substep B addresses the severity of each hazard. It is
expressed in
terms of—
• Degree of injury or illness.
• Loss of or damage to equipment or property.
• Environmental damage.
• Other mission-impairing factors such as lost combat
