Part 36 Mining

Section 620 Removal and transfer

Subsection 620(1)

Proper transportation and handling of explosives by competent personnel ensures the safety of the work site. Limiting who transfers explosives reduces the number of workers at risk and reduces the potential for errors.

Subsection 620(2)

Explosives being transferred to a work site must be transported as quickly as possible to minimize the extent to which mine workers are exposed to a potential explosion hazard.
