ABSTRACT

Evaluation of Lead Exposure at an Indoor Law Enforcement Firing Range   [open pdf - 2MB]

"We evaluated lead exposures in an indoor law enforcement firing range. We found lead in the air, but below occupational exposure limits. We also found lead on all surfaces tested including instructors' skin and footwear. All instructors had detectable blood lead levels. We recommended testing and balancing the ventilation system, improving hand hygiene, and starting a lead exposure monitoring program."
