Abstract:

In September 2009, the United States Army Technical Center for Explosives Safety USATCES, in coordination with the Director of Army Safety, tasked LMI to assess the explosives safety competency level of U.S. Army Career Program 12 CP-12, Safety and Occupational Health SOH professionals. USATCES is an element of the United States Army Defense Ammunition Center DAC and is responsible for implementing sound and vigilant explosives safety principles throughout the U.S. Army. USATCES continuously assesses training requirements to ensure explosives safety expertise is provided to support the Army mission as it relates to explosives safety. This paper summarizes our assessment approach and overall findings from our investigation. A full report of the assessment results and recommendations is currently under review by stakeholder groups with an expected completion date of 31 July 2010.
