An expatriate military adviser in Bosnia inspired me to write this paper when he explained his opinion that demining accidents were "a statistical certainty." I had just arrived in Bosnia after visiting Pakistan where I had conducted extensive interviews with deminers and their advisers to learn how they had managed to reduce demining accidents. I realized that some of the techniques that the Afghan deminers had devised for themselves were widely applicable.
