Abstract: Efforts have been launched to systematically collect and analyse information on the causes and dynamics of Natech accidents, as well as near misses, to support scenario development and the design of better risk mitigation options. Using post-accident analysis, conclusions can be drawn on the most common damage and failure modes and hazmat release paths, particularly vulnerable storage and process equipment types, and the hazardous materials most commonly involved in these types of accidents. This chapter gives an overview of natural-hazard specific lessons learned but also discusses features common to Natech accidents triggered by different natural hazards.
