Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM)

Working with explosives is a volatile arena.  Most related incidents carry potentially severe consequences. How can such incidents be minimized and eliminated?

Answer: with a well-trained workforce.

To achieve this, it is incumbent upon organizations to ensure their employees are knowledgeable of, and comply with, the many and varied statutory regulations governing their daily activity.  Using the International Ammunition Technical Guidelines, the Worldwide Counter Threat Solutions PSSM training program will provide the audience with internationally recognized best practice solutions to stockpile security, storage and management with an emphasis on risk reduction.

WCTS  has a wealth of knowledge in this area and can provide advice, guidance and assistance on the whole range of PSSM activities including storage, transportation, handling processes, operating procedures and safe disposal training. Our instructors  are US and British Army trained  to the highest standards of ammunition safety, transport, management and disposal, and have applied their expertise within the UK, on operations, and in post-conflict arenas across the globe.
