Description:The project analyses and deals with long-term problems with the setting of requirements in the system of prevention of major accidents in or near buildings where explosives, munitions, ammunition or pyrotechnic products are placed. Problems in this area stem mainly from the concurrence of legal requirements of the Act on the prevention of major accidents on the one hand and the requirements of the State Mining Administration on the other hand. They are also contributed to by the absence of narrowly focused methodological materials, specifying the way of execution and the scope of major accident risk assessment, including the analysis of the human factor reliability and error, and consequently specifying the essentials of the features and scope of the description of an adequate safety management system for the handling of the relevant dangerous substances and articles. The project also anticipates the involvement of external experts in this field, including representatives of the industrial sector. The objective of the project is to unify the approach to prevention of major accidents in or near the buildings in question and to set detailed requirements in the form of a methodical procedure suitably applicable to this specific area.
