MINES AND UXOS
One of the deadliest legacies of the 20th century is the use of landmines in warfare. Anti-personnel landmines continue to have tragic, unintended consequences even years after a battle or the entire war has ended. As time passes, the location of landmines is often forgotten, even by those who planted them. These mines continue to be functional for many decades, causing further damage, injury and death. The aim of this course is to provide general landmine and unexploded ordnance (UXO) awareness and safety information to individuals working in the vicinity of areas affected by these types of weapons.
