Cincinnati, OH: U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, HETA 81-303-947, 1981 Sep; :1-9
Environmental and personal air samples were analyzed for lead (7439921) at the Omaha Federal Reserve Bank's indoor firing range (SIC-9221) in Omaha, Nebraska, on June 30 and July 1, 1981. An unidentified individual requested the evaluation for an unspecified number of employees. Five personal breathing zone and five general area air samples were collected. All of the area samples and four of the five personal samples exceeded the OSHA 8 hour time weighted average for lead of 50 micrograms per cubic meter. The author concludes that a lead exposure hazard exists at this facility, and recommends dividing the range officer duties between three individuals, increasing air supply into the range, increasing the exhaust ventilation, and medical monitoring of the range officer.
