International Mine Action Standard 10.60 Safety & Occupational Health - Investigation and Reporting of Accidents and Incidents: Notes on the revised second edition


SUMMARY: In 2019, the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) received permission from the International Mine Action Standard (IMAS) Review Board (RB) to update IMAS 10.60, Safety & occupational health – Investigation and reporting of accidents and incidents. The first edition of the document, originally drafted in October 2001 and last amended in June 2013, included a number of areas where significant improvement was possible. In light of this, the IMAS RB established a Technical Working Group (TWG) in October 2019 to enable nominated representatives to feed into the drafting process. The original TWG included representatives from MAG, HALO, NPA, ICRC, HI, Afghanistan DMAC, Tetra Tech, CISR, PM/WRA, and independent members.1 In time, UNMAS and the military representative on the IMAS RB joined the TWG.
