Employers and employees who store and handle explosives accept a great responsibility. The safety and lives of others can depend on how well they guard against the theft, loss or accidental detonation of explosive materials. Oversights, mistakes or lack of proper knowledge could lead to tragedy. Such tragedies can be avoided by building proper storage magazines and by following proper safety and security procedures. This guide introduces information on the safe and proper storage of different types and amounts of explosive materials. Several charts included in this guide can help the reader find information relating directly to specific situations. This course is based on a document by the N.C. Department of Labor (NCDOL). The NCDOL document is based on OSHA standards for blasting (Subpart U) as amended by 13 NCAC 7F.0201(5) to include state-specific requirements. If any part of the NCDOL document or this course is believed to conflict with the above referenced OSHA standard, the reader should refer to the OSHA standard.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
