The EIDAS Database contains details of incidents involving explosives and fireworks that have occurred in the UK. Over 100 years of records from explosives accident reports are included. Most of the records on the database prior to 1975 have been encoded from information previously published in the Annual Reports of Her Majesty’s Inspectorate of Explosives. Details of accidents since 1975 have been taken from HSE records. The database contains much information on the causes and effects of explosives accidents. This information can be valuable in helping identify measures for reducing the risks involved in explosives manufacture, transport, storage and use. It is hoped that this information will be of use in ensuring that these risks are reduced as low as reasonably practicable (ALARP).
