Ammunition & Explosives Safety Training for Defense Contractors

This 5-day course is one of the original courses TCI offered since early 1999. Through feedback from past students, we've refined, modified, and shaped the course into the energetic, interactive, and engaging course of today.  


This course is designed to provide students with an understanding of the technical safety standards, procedures, and safety practices required for all aspects of handling ammunition and explosives. By utilizing the DoD Contractors’ Safety Manual for Ammunition and Explosives (DOD Manual 4145.26) as the baseline for the training and multiple instructors (industry specialists, government experts, and technical inspectors), we are able to cover a vast array of topics in detail. The course specifically addresses contractor operations and contractual safety requirements, and it includes specific, practical information that can help safety managers understand, interpret, and uniformly apply the contract safety requirements of the Contractors’ Safety Manual (4145.26). Additionally, we tackle the peculiar manufacturing safety requirements associated with explosives operations.
