This paper presents a novel risk assessment model considering human factor based on the fuzzy logic approach. For the contribution of the literature, not only the number of people is included in the process of risk assessment, but also with the human factor as a quantitative entry in this study. A flexible and user-friendly risk assessment interface is developed using LabVIEW program, which puts at disposal different applications for the course material. Designed interface gives an opportunity to users to assess risks in a wide range of consequences containing many different combinations and options. The interface is tested for a 100-kV high-voltage cell as a case study. As a result, it is seen that the interface assesses plenty of input elements and possibilities in a short time. For this reason, the fuzzy logic approach is suggested as a suitable method for risk assessment. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
