Resumen Results of the inquiry carried out by the Netherlands Labour Inspectorate into the causes of an explosion at the Muiden gunpowder factory which resulted in 2 deaths and a large number of persons injured. The explosion was very probably due to wrong operation in uncoupling an air drier filled with porous hunting powder: an ungrounded conductor (the cover of the drier) was elctrostatically charged by the powder and caused ignition.
