A Hazard Evaluation and Technical Assistance survey was conducted by NIOSH on March 1977, at the indoor firing range of the Main Post Office Building (SIC-7399) in Denver, Colorado. The survey was prompted by a request from the safety manager of the building regarding the potential exposure to lead (7439921) of the approximately 21 affected employees who use the indoor firing range for target practice. Based on the results of medical interviews, blood lead levels, environmental concentrations and the limited use of the firing range, it appeared that a toxic situation did not exist at the time of the survey. Recommendations are made for preventing eventual lead poisoning.
