New Storage Rules to Replace MSER

01 December 2014

The Explosives Regulations 2014, L150 Safety Provisions & L151 Security Provisions came into force on 1 October 2014, and therefore the Approved Code of Practice Manufacture and Storage of Explosives Regulations (MSER) 2005 and HELA Regulations have been superseded.

The differences are that some of the exemptions extended to the UK Police Forces under the MSER regulations are now no longer extant and this will require Forces to review their current arrangements to comply with The Explosives Regulations 2014.

Primetake provides an Introduction to the Safe Storage And Handling Of Explosive Articles And Substances Course under the current Explosives Regulations 2014.

This course is designed for personnel working within or supervising armouries and magazines and covers the following subjects:

 

INTRODUCTION TO LEGISLATION

• The Explosives Regulations 2014, L150 Safety Provisions & L151 Security Provisions

• Classification and Labelling of Explosives Regulations

• The Control of Explosive Regulations

• International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road (ADR)

 

CLASSIFICATION OF AMMUNITION

• Class of Hazard – Hazard (Fire) Divisions – Compatibility Groups

 

ACCOUNTING FOR EXPLOSIVE ARTICLES AND SUBSTANCES

• Legal Requirements

• Methods of Accounting

 

GENERAL STORAGE AND HANDLING

• Building Inspections

• Packing and Storage

• Humidity Levels

• Access to Stores

• Signage

 

Plus many more areas on how to improve the safe storage and handling of explosive articles and substances.

As a preference the course requires the availability of an armoury/magazine to allow personnel to conduct an audit. Alternatively courses can be held at Primetake premises (minimum 4 attendees per course).
