This pattern provides a framework for arguing that identified risks in a system have been sufficiently addressed in accordance with the ALARP principle.

This pattern was developed for two reasons:
- To argue compliance with the ALARP principle at the highest level when addressing system level hazards.
- To provide a more structured approach to presenting a ‘Hazard Avoidance’ argument (See Hazard Avoidance Pattern) by showing differing treatment of hazards according to their associated risk.
