A qualitative and empirical scale of the significance of the probability of failure in slopes, based on published case studies, is presented. The suitability of the scale is illustrated in terms of examples on soli, mine tailings and rock slopes. It is further illustrated that the peak strength parameters obtained in the usual way for soil and rock slopes are sufficiently reliable to calculate the probability of failure.
