SAFEX Newsletter No.66, 3rd Qtr 2018

2018 is already on a downwards slope to December and the year end. The seasons are changing, the climate is changing, business is changing, are we as an industry adapting fast enough to ensure a safe future for the next generation/s. Are we developing new products and processes that changes the whole safety environment in a much more positive manner? Our industry is historically a very conservative one in adopting anything “new”. Electronic detonators were developed in the late 1980’s and  only really made headway as a technology over the last decade and a half. Cutting edge technologies are being developed, is our industry ready to look at applications like 3D printing, printed electronics, printed pyrotechnics, cutting edge primary and secondary explosives etc, to replace historical processes and products. These are potentially safer and more environmentally friendly technologies. Is our industry prepared to invest capital to develop a new world of commercial explosives ?
