The purpose of the
Explosives Act 1999 (the Act) is to regulate the handling of, and access to, explosives to protect public health and safety, property and the environment. This is achieved by ensuring that explosives are only accessed by persons who hold a security clearance or who are under the direct supervision of a person who holds a security clearance.
Under section 33 of the Act, it is an employer's obligation to ensure that employees that have unsupervised access to explosives, hold a current security clearance.
