Protection and safeguarding of critical infrastructures (such us chemical industry, oil & gas industry, nuclear industry, etc.) is an important subject of study in the contemporary society. The study of risks associated to critical infrastructure required models of good practice to investigate the complexity of processes in case of accidents. The risk management can be viewed in two ways: human error and system reliability. In other words in terms of human error it is essential to ensure the operator performance to manage a complex system or an unexpected situation. While in terms of system reliability it is essential to ensure that a system is at least as reliable as the system it is replacing. The present chapter aims to analyze the main disasters occurred in critical infrastructures related to human errors or lack of reliability of systems.
