The paper is an overview (using references listed below) and describes the main components, means and methods of a holistic and quantitative human reliability analysis (QHRA) using quantitative values of human error when performing Fault Tree Analysis (FTA) and Event Tree Analysis (ETA). It also deals with qualitative assessment of the influence of the human factor (HF) reliability on safety and risk analysis of potentially dangerous man-machine-structures-environment systems (PDMMSES). Qualitative risk analysis of such man-machine-structures-environment (MMSE) systems is based on using the event-decision technique in combination with a generalized socio-psychological model of the decision making person (DMP). Three types of DMP’s are considered: members of maintenance/repair crews, diagnosticians and different rank DMP’s that operate or own the PDMMSES.
