SLP 17: Safety in the Transportation, Storage, Handling & Use of Commercial Explosive Materials
Originally published in 1932, SLP-17 discusses explosives products that are currently in use, and outlines best practices for their manufacture, transportation, storage, and use. The SLP covers, in part, the types of commercial explosives products in use today, and the various machines, initiating systems, and other tools necessary for their use in the field. It also describes common applications where explosives are used, including mining, quarrying, seismic prospecting, and agricultural blasting. Lastly, it provides information on pre- and post-blast practices used by the industry to ensure the safety of workers and the public.
