||Fly-rock is defined as material blasted away from explosion sites. The objective of this study was to develop a working method or procedure to manage fly-rock risk, based on a blend of safety management issues, including human factors, technological solutions such as a probabilistic approach and engineering controls to enable the industry to effectively control fly-rock.
