 Info Pack - Lead contamination and lead exposure at shooting ranges

 Collated by Elizabeth O’Brien, BSc (Sydney), Grad Dip Health Education

Our website contains the first three articles in our info pack regarding shooting ranges:

  1. "Editorial - Unsafe Work Practices and Lead";
  2. "Gun Instructors Exposed To Lead"; and
  3. "The Green Machine video"

Other useful articles are:

  1. "A Manageable Hazard - Aiming for Lower Lead Exposure: Shooting and Exposure to Lead
  2. "Discovery Bay shot with lead? Resident's complaint lures EPA to site of shooting range" By Evan Cael, Peninsula Daily News. Last modified: September 18. 2007 9:00PM
  3. "INDOOR FIRING RANGES INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE TECHNICAL GUIDE: Technical Manual NEHC (US Navy Environmental Health Center) TM6290.99-10 Rev.1 (May 2002)" FROM  [This guide has some good ideas eg recommends painting of porous floors in the range for ease of cleaning, but does not sufficiently emphasize the importance of biological monitoring (blood lead testing for lead exposure, urine lead testing for lead styphnate exposure), but wrongly states that lead does not penetrate the skin.]
  4. "NIOSH Alert - Preventing Occupational Exposures to Lead and Noise at Indoor Firing Ranges"
