According to the Care Inspectorate website, an evaluation of weak, or a score of 2, will apply to "performance in which strengths can be identified but these are outweighed or compromised by significant weaknesses".  

In this case, inspectors will have deemed that "the weaknesses, either individually or when added together, substantially affect peoples’ experiences or outcomes".

As a result, it is believed that without improvement as a matter of priority, the welfare or safety of people may be compromised, or their critical needs not met.  

Likewise, a rating of unsatisfactory, or 1, represents "major" weaknesses in "critical aspects of performance", which would likely lead to people’s welfare or safety being compromised.
