Ammunition Incident investigation
The reporting and investigation of ammunition incidents and accidents is a key component in ensuring the safety of the ammunition stockpile during storage, handling and operational use.
Accidents or incidents involving ammunition are a regular occurrence, and range from injuries to personnel and damage to property during small-scale demolitions to the mass-explosion of ammunition depots causing massive loss of life.
In the case of an accident of significant magnitude, the purpose of the investigation is to:
- Conduct a needs assessment to identify resources to stabilise the situation.
- Conduct a technical and/or non-technical survey on which to base a risk assessment.
- Develop a remediation plan.
Threat Resolution Ltd, through its employment of ex-British Ammunition Technical officers and Ammunition Technician possesses the capability of rapidly responding to incidents to conduct the above functions.
