Human Reliability Assessment

Human Reliability Assessment

As Engineers we often focus on the hardware. Traditionally we perform reliability analysis on components and their reliability dependencies. We often refer to reliability analysis at system level but rarely do we consider the holistic system including Human Reliability (HR). This is an area of science historically analysed by physiologists. In recent years the subject of human reliability has become more palatable for engineers with advent of practical methods for analysis and improved practice. In this training course delegates will be introduced to the concept of human reliability and human reliability assessment (HRA).
