Part 33 Explosives Safety

Section 472 Light sources in magazines

Artificial light sources such as flashlights, headlamps, vehicle headlights and lanterns must be of such a type, or constructed or positioned in such a way, that they eliminate the possibility of explosives contained in the magazine from being exposed to sparks, open flames or other sources of ignition. Some of these light sources might be designed and approved “for use with explosives”. In other cases, the light sources may need to be positioned outside the magazine with their light shining into the magazine.
