The aim of this contribution is to focus attention on a new emerging risk known in the literature as Na-Tech risk (Natural-Technological risk). Na-Tech are technological accidents triggered by natural events, these are of particular interest for high risk industries. The magnitude of such an event is much broader than that related to a technological accident and its management is much more complex. Adequate preparedness, proper emergency planning and effective response are crucial for the prevention and mitigation of the consequences of Na-Techs This contribution gives a general overview of the methodologies, that are currently being developed, in order to integrate these types of scenarios into the conventional quantitative risk analysis for chemical and process industry.

Abstract

The aim of this contribution is to focus attention on a new emerging risk known in the literature as Na-Tech risk (Natural-Technological risk). Na-Tech are technological accidents triggered by natural events, these are of particular interest for high risk industries. The magnitude of such an event is much broader than that related to a technological accident and its management is much more complex. Adequate preparedness, proper emergency planning and effective response are crucial for the prevention and mitigation of the consequences of Na-Techs This contribution gives a general overview of the methodologies, that are currently being developed, in order to integrate these types of scenarios into the conventional quantitative risk analysis for chemical and process industry.
