Institute of Makers of Explosives Safety Analysis for Risk (IMESAFR) is a probabilistic risk assessment tool used to calculate risk to personnel from explosives facilities. This tool is a supplement to the longstanding American Table of Distances. Whereas the ATD provides a level of  safety based on explosives quantity and distance, IMESAFR determines a level of safety based upon risk. In addition to explosives quantity and distance, IMESAFR uses the donor structure, the activity at the donor, and the structure of the exposed sites to determine the level of safety.

System Requirements

IMESAFR 2.0 is compatible with Windows® 7 and 8.  An application installer for OS X, Linux, older versions of Windows®, and other operating systems may be available upon request.
