PROTECTING POLICE OFFICERS FROM LEAD IN LAW ENFORCEMENT FIRING RANGES

TSA Requires Ranges Provide Proof of Lead Safety

If your gun range wants to host Federal Air Marshals or other federal employees seeking training and certification, you'd better be able to provide proof that your facility is not contaminated with lead or threatening your employees with unsafe levels of workplace lead exposure.

Lead, a potential neurotoxin that can cause brain and organ damage, is present in bullets and, to an even greater extent, in training-only rounds that are often used on ranges. After being shot, the rounds release dust that contains lead into the air, where those present can breathe it in. Proper ventilation and cleaning procedures are a must to minimize exposure to shooters.

Because it also settles on the ground and throughout the facility, workers in gun ranges must take special precautions to avoid getting lead dust in their clothing or possessions.

Now, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has determined that ranges hosting its employees must be certified free of dangerous lead levels. Most federal air marshals must engage in regular training every three to four months. Some of the facilities that they were training in had dangerous levels of lead present, and instructors had high lead levels in their blood.

Language in TSA's 2015 proposals for gun training facilities states, "The range must comply with applicable, local, state and federal regulations, including but not limited to, lead exposure. Vendor MUST submit its most recent certification of lead exposure testing and/or its most current OSHA compliance certificate/letter and air sample for lead with submission of proposal."

To comply with federal regulations, indoor and outdoor gun ranges must prove they have been tested by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and found to have levels of lead below the minimum safety requirement.

That means that ranges seeking federal contracts -- as well as those seeking to maintain low levels of lead overall -- should partner with an environmental firing range service provider like MT2.

MT2 is the Nation’s leading provider of environmental firing range services in the US and has served approximately 1,000 public and private firing ranges nationwide since 2000. MT2’s firing range services include complete range maintenance, improvements and lead remediation services. In the past year alone, MT2 has completed firing range clean-ups for law enforcement agencies such as NYPD, Denver, Richmond, Duluth, Concord and US Border Patrol.

Over the past decade, MT2 has removed over 11,000,000 lbs. of lead from the environment while working closely with range owners to implement firing range Best Management Practices (BMPs) to protect shooters and the environment. MT2’s patented ECOBOND® lead treatment technology provides a unique solution eliminating the need to generate hazardous waste, saving money and protecting the environment.

Lead Paint Demolition Considerations in Bridge Repair

As America moves forward with the much-needed repair or replacement of these deficient structures, this lead based paint will be a major health and safety issue.

ECOBOND® LBP is a safe, economical method to coat the LBP for safe removal.  The patented formula chemically converts the lead and stabilizes it, rendering it safe for demolition.  It's patented softeners and penetrators provide exceptional adherence and reduces lead hazard by up to 95%.

When ECOBOND® LBP is used properly, removed and collected solid waste can typically be disposed of as non-hazardous for lead.  This will result in a major savings of time and money over standard hazardous disposal fees.
