Details

Generic risk assessment 5.7 considers the hazards, risks and control measures for operational incidents where explosives, which include fireworks, are or are suspected to be involved.

It does not cover explosive devices where their intentional use is to cause harm and destruction, such as acts of terrorism. However, the principles detailed within this document would still apply, subject to information and dynamic risk assessment.

The generic risk assessment published in November 2012 replaces this guidance.
