Role of human uncertainties is not unusual. Most of the landslides emerge on manmade slopes and this is in essence the upshot of uncertainties related to human factors/human errors. These “human factors” are thorny to weigh up during the design process but can cause pressure on structural integrity/safety. In this study author has tried to pinpoint two most disastrous landslides of Malaysian region which has been occurred in different decades, without any geological or morphological reason. This study also exposes those sources/causal factors due to which slope failures are frequent. In the end the author is proposing the causal factor control plan (due to which landslides are numbering day by day). In actual this study conceded out that reliability theory can be used as a logical substitute and found it much more consistent as compared to traditional practices.
