What is category 1 hazard?

A category 1 hazard relates to the score from a HHSRS assessment for a particular hazard.  For example, if an officer assessed the hazard of Excess Cold and it scored over 1000 it would be a category 1 hazard and the council must take action to remove or reduce the hazard.  If the score is below 1000 it is a category 2 hazard and the council has discretion as to whether or not to take action.
