NIOSH 1977 Dec:15 pages
A hazard evaluation and technical assistance survey of an indoor firing range (SIC-9999) at the Department of the Treasury, U. S. Customs House in Philadelphia, was conducted to evaluate both range design and the extent of shooter exposure to inorganic lead (7439921) generated while firing is reported. A total of 30 personal and area air samples were collected. Personal air samples for shooters ranged from 167 to 740 Pb/m3. The range officer was exposed to concentrations from 78 to 198 Pb/m3. All shooters exceeded the standard of 200 pb/m3. Excessive lead concentrations had also migrated from the firing range to adjoining locker areas. High lead concentrations remained around the range from 40 to 50 minutes after firing.
