Blasting flying stone is one of the six hazards in rock and soil blasting construction. In order to determine the risk level of blasting flying stone, 3 first-grade indexes such as blasting design and construction are selected, and 11 second-grade indexes such as warning range are not set, so as to establish the blasting flying stone safety evaluation model of AHP-GRA. The analytic hierarchy process (AHP) was used to calculate the weight of the evaluation index. The grey correlation method was used to determine the correlation degree between the blasting flying stone and the safety level of an airport. The risk level of an airport was calculated based on the weight of the evaluation index, and the engineering verification was carried out. The results show that there is no warning signal, no notice before detonation and the warning range is too small, which are the main factors of the flying stone accident. The model presented in this paper is used to evaluate the blasting flying stones in an airport, and the evaluation results are basically consistent with the reality. It can be seen that the evaluation model can scientifically and reasonably evaluate the risk level of blasting flying stones, which has important practical significance.
