A building in which explosive is kept or present shall, unless specially exempted by the licence or by an order of an inspector, be deemed to be a danger building, and the interior of every such building, and the benches, shelves and fittings in such building, shall be so constructed or so lined or covered as to prevent the exposure of any iron or steel and the detachment of any grit, iron, steel or similar substance in such manner as to come into contact with the explosive in such building, and such interior, benches, shelves and fittings shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, be kept clean and free from grit; except that so much of this section as applies to the exclusion of grit, iron or steel does not apply in a building in which no explosive other than explosive of Division 1 of Class 6 (ammunition) is kept.
92. Charcoal, whether ground or otherwise, oiled cotton, oiled rags or oiled waste, or any articles liable to spontaneous ignition, shall not be taken into any danger building except for the purpose of immediate supply and work or immediate use in such building, and upon the cessation of such work or use shall be forthwith removed.
93. Before repairs are done to, or in any room in or other part of, a danger building, that room or part shall, so far as is practicable, be cleaned by the removal of all explosive, and by the thorough washing of such room or part; such room or part of the building, after being so cleaned shall be deemed not to be a danger building within the meaning of this Part until explosive is again taken into it; and during the time that such room or part of the building is so deemed not to be a danger building within the meaning of this Part, a person employed to make such repairs may, notwithstanding anything in this Part, have matches in his possession in such room or part of the building if the work to be done by him requires the use of matches and if he holds a permit, signed by or under the authority of the operator of the magazine, authorizing him to have matches in his possession in such room or part of the building.
94. The Minister may, in writing, impose such conditions or restrictions as he deems necessary in respect of any particular magazine under this Part and he may, subject to such conditions as he may think expedient, waive any requirement under this Part in respect of any particular magazine.
95. The operator of a magazine shall constantly keep affixed in every danger building, either outside or inside, in such a manner as to be easily read, a statement of the quantity of explosive allowed to be in the building, a copy of this Part, a copy of any portions of the Act required by the Minister to be so affixed, such part of the licence as applies to the building and a copy of all conditions and restrictions imposed by the Minister under this Part with reference to that building, and the operator shall also suitably place in or near the site of the magazine, notices giving warning against trespassing on the property, which notices shall include the terms of section 18 of the Act.
96. All tools and implements kept or used in a danger building shall be made only of wood, copper, brass or some soft metal or material, or shall be covered with some safe and suitable material.
