Managing domino effects in an industrial area is not an easy task. It requires multidisciplinary knowledge and know-how, an adequate mindset, eye for detail and for the big picture, a short-term as well as a long-term vision, thorough collaboration efforts, a generalistic perspective with specialist knowledge, and so on. Different domains need to be dealt with in relation to domino effects: technological issues, procedural requirements, and human factor topics. This chapter describes for each of these domains how they should
