The primary cause of this accident is listed as Inadequate equipment because the handtool issued to the deminer was not designed for purpose and did not protect his hand in the event of a blast. The secondary cause is listed as Unavoidable because it is possible that the deminer was working to his SOPs when the accident occurred.
