Abstract Slope engineering is nowadays in great demand of proper risk management. Predictions regarding slope performances are subjugated by uncertainties. This includes uncertainties related to soil properties, model uncertainties and human uncertainties. In this study author discusses reliability analysis principles in relation with conventional practices and to prove its efficiency three case studies of Malaysian slope failures has been taken for further clarification. It is also mentioned that the concluded probability of failure still needs more refinement as no human uncertainties has been considered in this probabilistic analysis. Probabilistic analysis afford greater insight into design reliability, hence, supporting the engineering judgment and recuperating the decision making process. So, the intelligibility, effortlessness and cost/time effectiveness are indispensable essentials in order to successfully express and commune a probabilistic methodology to practicing engineers
