You must take reasonable precautions to:
- prevent misfires
- minimise the risk of material being projected beyond the exclusion zone (flyrock)
- minimise excessive noise
- minimise the adverse effects of ground vibration and shock waves
- ensure the security of an explosive used in blasting activities.
You must not use an explosive after either the manufacturer's recommended shelf life or the approved, extended shelf life.
You must notify the authority of any blasting activity (other than at a mine site, a quarry, down-hole wells for oil and gas, or an explosives factory) at least 7 days before the intended blasting activity.
