Background and Objective: Explosives storage is considered one of the most dangerous working parts of mines where the people working there are exposed to all kinds of physical, chemical, and psychological risks and injuries that can negatively affect their health. Therefore, the current research aimed to provide a model for risk assessment of hazards in these warehouses.
Materials and Methods: Firstly, using the Fine-Kinney risk assessment method, the effective criteria in determining the risks of explosives warehouse, including including intensity, probability and frequency of exposure were identified. Therafter, the weight of each criterion was calculated using Shannon's entropy method. Finally, the risks of explosives warehouses were determined and prioritized using the ARAS method.
Results: Based on Shannon's entropy method calculations, the intensity criterion with a weight of 0.61 was assigned the most weight among the three investigated criteria. Moreover, among the various risks investigated, the use of any flame-producing devices in the warehouse (R14), non-use of special tools while opening the box of explosives (R17), and opening the boxes inside the warehouse (R7) were determined as the most important risks of explosives warehouses.
Conclusion: In this study, intensity was determined as the most important criterion, and the use of any flame-producing devices in the warehouse was determined as the most important risk. The proposed method can be used as a risk assessment method to identify the risks in the warehouse of explosives.
