Accident records from Jordan do not include any from the time that the national armed forces were conducting clearance, and so only cover the period since 2006.
The records made available are detailed and especially interesting because the demining process used was primarily raking, and the injuries were unusually minor despite the frequent use of blast goggles or the Mask-visor. Blast boots were also worn, and their effectiveness against very small mines (M14 AP blast with 28g Tetryl) can be assessed.
These records provide an example of the way that increasing distance between the deminer and the device can significantly reduce the risk of severe injury in an excavation accident. They also provide a good example of accident investigations conducted with professionalism and objectivity by the demining group itself.
