Safety comes in many forms and is necessary when developing new explosives manufacturing, handling, and application procedures. No matter if your company is new or has been around a while, we can help you develop a comprehensive operating plan with internal and external emergency action plans that can majorly reduce your risk of an accident.
Every company can find some ways to improve their safety techniques. When you work with us we look at every aspect of your processes to determine areas for improvement. Then we help you implement those changes to enhance overall safety.
Our experts perform safety audits to check on your policies, processes, machinery, and practices to ensure that everything is safety-focused and doesn’t need to be updated.
However, an Explosives safety plan is only as good as those who enforce it. That is exactly why we also offer comprehensive training to employers and employees alike. This training ensures that everyone understands the importance of safety and how to carry out the best safety techniques.

Minimize Net Explosives Weight
The quantities of explosives, propellants, and pyrotechnics and raw materials (including packaging) must always be kept as low as practical and appropriately separated. This includes the separation and segregation of waste.
Minimum Human Exposure
Whenever possible, use non-human attended or remote process equipment. There should be as few people as practical involved in the process. This includes barricades and suppressive shields. One often overlooked aspect is to have strict policies in place to restrict any non-process related people such as support staff, office staff and visitors.
Ideally there should either be only one operation per building or at least only one operation at any given time per building.
Risk Identification and Risk Assessment programs that involve process hazard analysis (PHA), hazards analysis and operability studies (HAZOP) and quantitative risk assessment (QRA) are required by law for manufacturing explosives, propellants, and pyrotechnics.
