Abstract
A series of hazard evaluation and technical assistance surveys to evaluate the effectiveness of ventilation and the risk of exposure to inorganic lead (7439921) to shooters and workers at an indoor firing range (SIC-9999) in Springdale, Ohio, are reported. Personal air samples obtained at the first survey were 2.7 to 6.2mg/m3 (mean 5.1mg/m3). Modifications in the ventilation system were carried out and shooters were made to use copper (7440508) jacketed slugs. At the second survey personal air lead concentrations ranged from less than 0.02 to 0.10mg/m3, which are within the acceptable levels. Analysis for air copper concentrations showed no detectable levels at the 0.02mg/m3 level.
