Abstract
Environmental and personal air samples were collected to determine the presence of lead (7439921) and carbon-monoxide (630080) (CO) at the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank, Indoor Firing Range (SIC-6011) in Kansas City, Missouri on August 4 to 6, 1976. The evaluation was requested by an unidentified representation of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank on behalf of about 59 security officers who use the range for small and large bore arms qualification tests. Lead concentrations for shooters ranged from 0.01 to 0.48 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/cu m). The 8 hour time weighted average concentration for the range officer was 0.01mg/cu m. Area samples had an average lead concentration of 0.01mg/cu m. All concentrations were within the OSHA standard of 0.2mg/cu m. Concentrations of CO were 17 parts per million (ppm) after 2,400 rounds of ammunition were fired. The authors conclude that are the engineering controls at the range are sufficient to maintain lead and CO concentrations within acceptable limits.
