What is Fine and Kinney?

The Fine & Kinney method (also known as the Kinney & Wiruth method) is used to estimate the degree of risk and to determine which measures should be taken to reduce these risks. In WPS, Fine & Kinney can be used as a method to determine the degree of risk per work permit. The measures can then be determined using the TRA method.

Fine & Kinney formula is Risk = Chance x Exposure x Severity

Each factor has its own reference scale. With this scale a value of the risk can be calculated. The height of the value is then classified again. With a high and urgent risk figure, WPS can trigger the TRA step to subsequently determine the safety measures to be taken.
