Abstract:

The Risk-Based Explosives Safety Criteria Team RBESCT was established by the DoD Explosives Safety Board DDESB in 1997 to develop risk-based models for explosives safety management and recommend risk-based explosives safety criteria. Safety Assessment for Explosives Risk SAFER 3.1 is the latest version of the risk-based software for siting DoD facilities. This paper briefly describes the development history of SAFER, SAFER documentation, the applications of SAFER for siting facilities in explosives areas, and the benefits derived from using SAFER for siting facilities. Approaches for communicating the application and the benefits of SAFER are also discussed.
