A SAFE PRACTICES MANUAL FOR THE MANUFACTURING, TRANSPORTATION, STORAGE AND USE OF EXPLOSIVES

Federal regulatory authority for control of non-military explosives is fragmented. This had led to confusion in the control of the use of such explosives. This manual describes the existing regulations, consensus standards and professional recommendations used to provide guidance in safe practices for supervisors and employees. The hazards are stated and work practices described to protect workers in manufacturing, mixing, transporting, storing, and using explosives.
