Purpose: Human factors play an inevitable role in maintenance activities, and the occurrence of Human Errors HEs affects system reliability and safety, equipment performance and economic results. In these approaches, various environmental and individual factors influence the performance of maintenance operators affecting Human Error Probability HEP with a consequent variability in the success of intervention.
However, a deep analysis of such factors in the maintenance field, often called Performance Shaping Factors PSFs , is still missing. The obtained results provided a wide overview in the field of interest, shedding light on three main research areas of investigation: methodologies for human error analysis in maintenance, performance shaping factors and maintenance error consequences. In particular, papers belonging to the area of PSFs were analysed in-depth in order to identify and classify the PSFs, with the aim of achieving the PSF taxonomy for maintenance activities.
The effects of each PSF on human reliability were defined and detailed. Findings: A total of 63 studies were selected and then analysed through a systematic methodology. Starting from the findings of the aforementioned papers, a PSF taxonomy specific for maintenance activities was proposed. This taxonomy represents an important contribution for researchers and practitioners towards the improvement of HRA methods and their applications in industrial maintenance.
This paper fills the gap in the literature with the creation of a PSF taxonomy in industrial maintenance. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.

Considering dangerous environmental conditions, maintenance of radioactive equipment can be performed by remote handling maintenance RHM system. The RHM system is a sophisticated man-machine system. Therefore, human factors analysis is an inevitable aspect considered in guaranteeing successful and safe task performance. This study proposes an approach for integrated analysis of human factors in RHM so as to make the evaluating process more practical. In the approach, indicators of accessibility, health safety, and fatigue are analyzed using virtual human simulation technologies.
Metrics details. The requirement for reliable electrical energy supply increases continuously because of its vital role in our lives. However, events due to various factors in the power grid can cause energy supply to be interrupted. One of these factors is human error and thus human reliability analysis is a serious element in the industry. The first step is to identify the roots of human error, on which there has been limited research in this area.
This chapter presents various introductory human factors, reliability, and error concepts considered useful for application in the areas of engineering maintenance.
The aim of the paper is to present the impact of human errors in maintenance as found in the literature in order for practitioners to be aware of their impact and develop actions to mitigate their effect. The paper systematically categorizes the published literature and then analyzes and reviews it methodically. A maintenance person plays an important role in the reliability of equipment.
Although information on human reliability, error, and human factors in engineering maintenance is scattered throughout journals and proceedings, no single resource covers all of these topics within a maintenance safety framework. Consulting different and diverse sources can not only make finding information laborious and time consuming, but also cause delays on the job. Human Reliability, Error, and Human Factors in Engineering Maintenance with Reference to Aviation and Power Generation provides engineers a tool for meeting the increasing problem of human error. Drawing on a myriad of sources, the book provides quick and easy access to information that can then be immediately applied to actual problems in the field. It includes examples and their solutions to illustrate engineering safety management at work and gives readers a view of the intensity of developments in the area.
Human error is an important risk factor for flight safety. Although the human error assessment and reduction technique HEART is an available tool for human reliability derivation, it has not been applied in flight safety assessment. It also fails to provide remedial measures for flight safety problems. To overcome these defects of the HEART, this study proposes an integrated human error quantification approach that uses the improved analytic hierarchy process method to determine the APOA values. A certain flight task is completed to assess human reliability. The results demonstrate that the proposed method is a reasonable and feasible tool for quantifying human error probability and assessing flight safety in the aircraft manipulation process. In addition, the critical error-producing conditions influencing flight safety are identified, and improvement measures for high-error-rate operations are provided.
Human reliability, error, and human factors in the area of power generation have been receiving increasing attention in recent years. This book compiles various recent results and data into one volume, and eliminates the need to consult many diverse sources to obtain vital information. It enables potential readers to delve deeper into a specific area, providing the source of most of the material presented in references at the end of each chapter.
