Abstract
The Bureau of Mines has developed blasters training material for the metal-nonmetal mining industry. The material is divided into 6 chapters and 47 modules, with each module covering a single topic. For example, the second chapter, which covers initiation and priming, is subdivided into nine modules. There is a module covering initiations systems in general, another module covering delay series, and one discussing priming. The remaining six modules deal with each of the six initiation systems. The modules were structured to enable the mine training personnel to easily develop a site-specific blasters training program. Each module contains text material that comprehensively covers the topic, as well as a paraphrased section highlighting the major ideas of the text. Also included with each module are line drawings and test questions with answers. The objective of this material is to increase hazard awareness and foster the use of safe blasting practices with the anticipated end result being accident-free and productive blasting.
