Landmine and UXO Safety Handbook

This handbook is NOT an instruction manual for working with mines or UXO, for surveying mined areas, or for finding and removing mines. This handbook is general in nature, and some aspects of it may not be applicable in all situations. The aim of this handbook is to provide general landmine and unexploded ordnance (UXO) awareness and safety information to organisations and individuals working in the vicinity of areas affected by these weapons, and to help them:
• Establish proper safety procedures;
• Avoid contact with mines and UXO;
• Take appropriate action in emergency situations involving mine/UXO incidents;
• Take appropriate action in case of accidental entry into a minefield.
