In fact, a better understanding of past incidents can be obtained also applying only some steps of the procedure, based on the available information. The applications refer to three major accidents occurred in Italy, at an oil products storage facility in Naples (1985), at a maleic anhydride plant in Colleferro (1981) and at an oil refinery in Milazzo (1993), respectively.
