Human and Organizational Factors (HOFs) are considered to have significant impacts on structural reliability. Yet how structural reliability is affected by these factors and how large this impact is remains inadequately studied. A model that is designed to reveal such relationships is proposed in this paper. First, a review of problem related studies from three different methodological viewpoints is presented. The proposed model integrates the reviewed methods under an Agent-Based Modeling (ABM) framework that is capable of capturing the dynamics and nonlinear influences of HOFs on the structural reliability. Subsequently, preliminary results of the structural failure probability frequency distribution from a case study of a simple floor slab structure are presented to illustrate the possibilities of the model. It is found out that the failure probability distribution changes significantly due to the influence by HOFs and checking for errors.
