Landslide/slope failures have been accounted, as the second natural disaster for Malaysia
after flood.From the landslides investigations reports, it is shown that landslides in Malaysia were
caused mainly by factors like lack of maintenance, less coordination during construction stage and
design problem apart from rainfall. The slant of this study facilitated multidisciplinary perceptions regarding human error causes in existing practices to be captured. This approach has the worth to offer the usefulness of progressive actions that are taken to strengthen the slopes. Conducting the surveys with focussed group respondents, could provide benchmarking to gauge any change in influences and resource use as efforts are made to advance the consideration of slope stability in hill
site developments.
