Abstract

Technological processes have allowed transferring human labour from a direct commitment to only controlling automatisms of machine. During the years machines’ reliability has proportionally risen. Therefore, the importance of human factor comes out from the need to make human reliability as high as that of machine. In literature there are many methods that deal with human reliability study, but none of these methodologies can be considered better; each has advantages and disadvantages and may be more or less appropriate, depending on studied context, resources and available expertise. Hence, the aim of this paper is to realize a review on the main methodological developments on Human Reliability Analysis and work safety. There are many and varied methods available for HRA; for this reason our review try to identify the main qualitative and quantitative HRA available techniques in order to carry out an assessment of their strengths and weaknesses.
