(EO4) Introduction to Electro Explosive Hazards

IEEH
This short course provides an introduction to the various aspects related to the assessment of the Electro Explosive Hazards associated with Explosive Ordnance which contains Electro Explosive Devices (EEDs).
If more than one EO workshop is booked; a discount may be applied to the final price.
 

Introduction:

Assessment of the safety of Electro Explosive Hazards (EEH) is a prescribed requirement within the ADF EO Safety Program (DEOP 100). This short course provides an introduction to the various aspects related to the assessment of EEH for Explosive Ordnance which contain Electro Explosive Devices.

The course will enable students to gain an understanding of the key requirements, as well as have the opportunity to quiz the instructor regarding specific examples of how to conduct an EEH assessment.
 

Target Audience:

All Explosive Ordnance (EO) Engineers within Explosives Materiel Branch (EMB). All engineering personnel that undertake review and/or assessment of EO Safety Cases for items which contain Electro Explosive Devices. This course will also provide useful background information to industry personnel/suppliers of EO items to EMB.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understanding the hazards posed by EEDs
  • Understanding the EO Safety Prescribed Certification Requirements applicable to EO devices which contain EEDs (EO Regulation 5.3 – Electro Explosive Hazards)
  • Understanding how the susceptibility of an EED may be assessed and the associated hazards managed So Far As Is Reasonably Practicable
  • Gain an appreciation of how RF exposure limits are communicated for EO devices which contain EEDs

Learning Methods:

Face to Face teaching by a Systems Safety Engineer with subject matter expertise
 

Program Benefits:

  • Informing ADF members (Project Managers, Engineering Manager, Logisticians, etc) of the hazards associated with Electro Explosive Devices (EEDs)
  • Provides an understanding of the hazards associated with EEDs
  • Identifies the applicable Prescribed Requirements specified in DEOP 100 regarding characterisation of EEDs
  • Highlights how the Electro Explosive Hazards associated with Explosive Ordnance are managed in the ADF
  • Provides baseline technical requirements to all EO engineers developing EO Safety Cases for EO devices containing EEDs

Content:

  • DEOP 100 Requirements
  • STANAG 4560 - Electro Explosive Devices, Assessment and Test Methods for Characterisation
  • Assessment of EED Susceptibility
  • DEOP Topic -027 Electro Explosive Hazards
