Abstract : Department of Defense contractors in the ordnance industry are being confronted with multiple safety-related issues that are currently or will very soon have a great impact upon the ability to produce ordnance material. Safety issues affecting industry can be resolved effectively with cooperation between government and industry. This paper will address some problem areas in safety confronted by contractors within the ordnance industry. The major areas where problems exist are: explosive hazard classifications, compliance standards, site plans, and training. Not all ordnance companies have experienced the problems that will be discussed, but many do, and these issues must be resolved. Ten possible solutions, which will stimulate mutual problem solving for the benefit of industry are proposed.
