For all areas where operational activities exist, human error possibilities are of critical importance. In this sense, maintenance, management and monitoring of all components in ships powered by gas turbine systems is a condition that must be observed. At this point, the importance of human impact is great and plays a critical role. In this study, the probabilities of human error on the 14 critical faults described in the literature for gas turbine components are calculated by the CREAM method in the sense of expert opinions. The results clearly indicate the importance of human impact on faults, and guide the technical personnel to be employed on board ship during the operation. This study provides the basis for further studies in this area.
