Abstract
After years of excellent blasting safety records, the metal-nonmetal industry suffered 10 fatalities in 15 months from May 1973 to August 1974. Each of these accidents involved a violation of recommended safety practices and could easily have been avoided. The events causing each accident are summarized and preventive measures are recommended.
