The paper highlights the result of the critical analysis upon criteria regarding the safety of explosives based on the quantification of risks specific for handling explosive materials, for the proper criteria selection and for defining the integrated concept “how safe is safe enough?”, applicable to complex work systems whose activity object involves the use of hazardous substances such as explosives for civil use. In this regard are conceptual and applicative presented judicial precedents and standards which are used for establishing risk acceptance criteria. These data and information are represented graphically along a series of logarithmic scales which ensure an objective manner for risk quantification based on scientific reasoning, real information derived from a data base which is specific for a deep knowledge of morbidity indicators recorded over an a statistically acceptable.
