What is Human Reliability Engineering?

Human Reliability Engineering (HRE) is a systematic approach that aims to understand, analyze, and improve the performance of human operators within complex systems. It involves the following key steps:

  • Human Factors Analysis: HRE starts by studying the interactions between human operators and the systems they operate. This includes understanding human capabilities, limitations, and behaviors that can influence system performance.
  • Error Identification: HRE identifies potential human errors that may arise from factors such as cognitive biases, stress, workload, or inadequate training. By analyzing past incidents and near-misses, HRE professionals can pinpoint areas of vulnerability.
  • Risk Assessment: Once potential errors are identified, HRE assesses their impact on the system’s reliability and safety. This step involves quantifying the likelihood of errors occurring and the potential consequences.
  • Mitigation Strategies: Based on the analysis, HRE proposes and implements strategies to reduce the likelihood of errors and their potential consequences. These strategies may include design improvements, procedural changes, and targeted training.
  • Human Factors Integration: HRE ensures that human factors are appropriately considered during the design, operation, and maintenance phases of the system’s lifecycle. This includes creating user-friendly interfaces, intuitive procedures, and efficient training programs.
  • Continuous Improvement: HRE is an ongoing process. It involves regular monitoring and feedback mechanisms to identify new risks and opportunities for improvement. Lessons learned from incidents and system performance are used to refine HRE strategies continually.


Human Reliability Engineering is applicable in various industries and domains where human performance significantly impacts system safety, reliability, and efficiency. Some examples include aviation, healthcare, nuclear power, transportation, manufacturing, and process industries.

In aviation, HRE plays a critical role in pilot training, cockpit design, and air traffic management to minimize the risk of human error in complex and safety-critical environments. In healthcare, HRE helps design user-friendly medical devices, improve medication administration processes, and enhance teamwork in surgical settings to prevent medical errors.

In nuclear power plants, HRE ensures that operators can effectively manage critical situations and respond to emergencies. Similarly, in transportation, it contributes to the design of user-friendly interfaces and training for vehicle operators to prevent accidents.

Overall, Human Reliability Engineering serves as a vital tool for optimizing the interaction between humans and complex systems, leading to enhanced safety, reliability, and performance across various industries.
