Representing the UK Explosives Industry

Working Groups

Following discussions within EIG and EIF AWE have kindly provided the following “Golden Rules” documents for EIG members to adapt for their own needs as necessary. EIG would be happy to publish other similar documents for the general explosives community – please email Charles Smith with copies if you can make them available.

The purpose of the documents is to provide examples of concise information sheets provided by companies for their staff. You should not copy them directly,….macy=2542, each site and each company’s requirements will differ – but we hope these documents provide a useful starting point.
