Hazard 27 - Explosions

This hazard covers the threat from the blast of an explosion, from debris generated by the blast, and from the partial or total collapse of a building as the result of an explosion.

A study for the Building Research Establishment (BRE) between 1985 and 1991 showed that the most frequent causes of explosions were mains gas (42%) and stored gas (17%). Water vapour explosions accounted for 5%, and fire for 4%, of the total recorded explosions.

The most likely causes are defective installation or design, and defects from inadequate maintenance.

Vulnerable Group: All ages
