Although the consequences of accidents involving ammunition and explosives can be catastrophic, such accidents are thankfully relatively infrequent occurrences. Unfortunately this means that over time the risks associated with activities involving explosives become normalised; people become over-familiar with inherently hazardous items, which can in the longer term lead to more accidents.
In order to combat this, MSIAC have developed a series of posters providing details of some of the most significant munitions or explosives accidents in history. The intent is that these posters act as a reminder of the importance of practicing explosive safety activities in a vigilant manner, and as such may also be used as an instructional aid.
All posters have been optimised for printing at sizes up to A2. The posters can be downloaded individually by clicking on the images below.
Our thanks to the Australian Directorate of Ordnance Safety for developing the original concept, and for giving us permission to recreate their posters.
