Part 33 Explosives Safety

Section 477 Appropriate quantities

The purchase and selection of charge sizes and the removal of appropriate quantities of explosives from the magazine should be based on the tasks being undertaken. This reduces the likelihood of larger charges being partitioned and excess explosives having to be returned to the magazine. This also eliminates unnecessary handling and reduces the possibility of an incident.
