Sector plan for health and safety in explosives

This is a relatively small but strategically important sector. It provides military products to national and allied forces as well as products critical to a range of other sectors, including onshore and offshore extractive industries, and entertainment and leisure.

The sector ranges from multinational organisations to microbusinesses, with the majority being SMEs. Regulatory responsibility is shared between HSE, the Ministry of Defence (MOD), local authorities, Fire and Rescue Services and the police.

The plan

This plan covers the current position, priorities and what HSE will do to help Great Britain work well.
