Recent events outlined the relevance of the interactions between industrial and natural hazards (NATECH) particularly for that concern seismic risk. EU regulation, namely Directive 2012/18/EU, among its new elements explicitly requires the analysis of NATECH hazards. The development of a risk analysis methodology for major hazard industrial plants allows the individuation of critical elements of the plants with regard to seismic actions. The following implementation of smart technologies (sensors, actuators, innovative systems for seismic protection) to the critical elements allows a relevant reduction of major hazards and related consequences.
