For a company to maintain its regular situation and business reputation, it should avoid the risks as much as possible. However, to be able to avoid the risk, managers must take the necessary precautions. Therefore, they must ensure control over any activities, situations, processes, etc. that cause harm to people and/or property. One useful way to do so is leveraging a Risk Assessment Excel Template!

By using this Hazard Identification & Risk Assessment (HIRA) Excel tool, you can evaluate the risk your company faces or might potentially face in the foreseeable future.


Mainly, the template has 3 parts:


Let’s take a quick look at the sections:

Risk Report

Firstly, the risk assessment template report will manage and control potential risks in your business. It involves a systematic examination of a workplace to identify hazards and assess injury severity and the likelihood to reduce risks. In addition, it displays an analysis of the amount and distribution of the likelihood and severity of the hazards you listed in the Risk List section.



Risk List

Secondly, this section mainly lets you list the hazards analyze them in terms of their severity and likelihood. Firstly, you will input your data in Hazard, Who is at risk, Person Responsible, and Recommended Action columns. After that, you can choose the option which suits you the best when you click on any cell in the Severity and Likelihood columns. Moreover, you can identify 200 hazards in this list.


Warning!: DO NOT type in or delete anything in the Risk Impact column, it adjusts itself automatically from Risk Assessment Matrix right after you choose your options in the Severity and Likelihood columns.

Risk Matrix

ّFinally, the risk impact is calculated by the risk identification matrix right after putting values for likelihood and severity. It is mainly used to assess the consequence, likelihood, and overall risk rating of a safety hazard.

    hazard rows are not sufficient for me. But template is good.

    • Someka

      Hi Valentine,

      Adding more lines is possible, after unlocking the premium version of the product with the password we sent.
      Under the dashboard sheet, you will see plus (+) sign on the left side of the table.
      When you click on the sign, extra rows will be added automatically. Please see the image below.


      Hope this helps!

      Hi Mervin,

      Of course, you can remove the logo or replace it with your own logo. For Free Versions, you are not allowed to remove the logo or alter any copyrighted material in the template.
      You can do it in the full version. Please check how to do that in this link.

    Tiny question,we couldn’t just change the colors for the risk impact column. how do you do this? please help us. thx

    • Someka

      Hi Gaye,

      Thank you for your kind words.
      Let me explain how to change your conditional formatting settings:
      After being sure that your sheet is unlocked, go to Home > Conditional Formatting > Manage Rules.


      Select Worksheet from the dropdown to see all the rules, then select the rule you want to edit and click on Edit Rule.
      On the Edit Formatting Rule window click on the Format button and then in the Format Cell window under the Fill area you’ll select the color you want to apply before clicking on OK.


      Hope this helps!

  9. Charles

    I have download this risk matrix tool. It is quite good but I would like to customize it and add columns. Is it possible to do? I also want to add one more likelihood to the matrix. How can I do it?

    • Someka

      Hi Charles,
      Thanks a lot for your interest! Once you download the modifiable version, it will allow you to add a new column inside the template for personal information. But, you should be careful about not corrupting the template structure. We recommend applying to our customization process for enlarging the risk assessment matrix. It needs additional functions to recognize the information on the column you add for new likelihood.
      Hope that helps!

    • Charles

      Can I create a 3×3 matrix instead of enlarging the original one? I mean, if I would like to create a smaller matrix. What should I do?

    • Someka

      Hi again, Charles!
      We have created our risk assessment matrix template according to the 4×4 size originally. So, if you would like to make it smaller or larger size, you need additional modification both. Our support team will be peaceful to help you with the small tricks. But, if you would like to do comprehensive customization, you should apply the customization process as we mentioned before.
      Best wishes,

    • Charles
