These regulations may be
general in nature or step-by-step procedures.
Regardless of the situation, safety precautions must
NEVER be ignored or bypassed, even during the
simplest ammunition-handling evolutions.
If you are involved in weapons assembly, always
review the applicable safety precautions before
beginning the evolution. A few of these general safety
precautions are as follows:
1. Fuze or defuze (electric fuzes only) bombs in
handling rooms or spaces specifically designed for such
2. Normally, mechanical nose-fuzed, high-
explosive bombs are fuzed after the weapon is loaded
on the aircraft. When the aircraft is carrier based, it must
be spotted on the flight deck. Exceptions to this rule are
authorized when loading bombs that require special
fuzing RADHAZ susceptible units, integral fuzing, and
3. Detonators, boosters, primers or other firing
devices arent assembled in or removed from bombs
unless specifically prescribed for the weapon.
4. Fuzes arent allowed to accumulate at the
fuzing stations. Never stockpile fuzes. They must be
withdrawn from stowage on an as needed basis.
5. Never, under any circumstance, try to
disassemble or repair a fuze. Also, never try to render
inert a live, loaded item of ordnance.
