Abstract

The paper presents the application of the CREAM (Cognitive Reliability and Error Analysis Method) method to assess operator reliability in the backwashing of filters process at the Water Treatment Station. For this purpose, two operators were surveyed. Based on the results, the human error probability was determined, which in both cases ranges from 5∙10−5 to 1∙10−2. The results also indicate that the surveyed operators have extensive work experience and high qualifications.
