Blasting Area Safety (US)

Blasting Area Safety (US)

In West Virginia, a truck driver and his supervisor are sitting in a truck a half mile away from a blast area. They have just watched a blast and are waiting for the all-clear signal. Suddenly, a rock that may have been traveling up to 400 miles an hour slams into the front windshield and exits the rear window. Somehow the rock misses them both and no one is hurt. Even though they were a half mile away from the blast, potentially lethal flyrock just narrowly missed those two people. They were extremely lucky; however, countless others each year are not. But many injuries and deaths from blasting can be prevented if the proper safety procedures are both planned and followed. This course will provide basic information about working in and around a blasting area. You won’t learn about the proper handling and transportation of explosives in this course, as that would require much more time and is really the responsibility of the blaster-in-charge and the blasting crew. But you will learn things you should know if you have occasion to be on or near a site where blasting occurs. Let’s see specifically what you are going to learn.
