On June 30, 1997, the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) received a Health Hazard Evaluation (HHE) request from an employer representative of the Forest Park Police Department (FPPD). The requester was concerned for potential exposure to lead among range users. NIOSH investigators originally assigned to this HHE request conducted a walk-through evaluation on July 14, 1997, and a more thorough industrial hygiene evaluation on July 29, 1997. In November 1998, this HHE was reassigned because of personnel changes within NIOSH. Subsequently, a walk-through survey of the police firing range was conducted by the new hygienist on November 4, 1998, and further evaluations were conducted on December 10th and 21st, 1998.
