Answer:

There are two main sources of OH&S risks:
1. risks emerging from OH&S hazards, legal and other requirements and effectiveness of existing controls;
2. risks related to establishment, implementation, operation and maintenance of the OH&SMS

For example, you can have a low awareness among employees regarding the hazards and this can lead to not applying operational controls and there is a higher risk of OH&S incidents due to the low awareness. This can be perceived as a risk from the internal context of the organization and as an action to address this risk, the organization can plan and develop awareness raising sessions for employees in order to ensure the operational controls are applied properly.
