Potential Health Risks to DOD Firing-Range Personnel
from Recurrent Lead Exposure

This new report, from the National Academies, assesses the possible health dangers to Department of Defense firing range instructors and other personnel who are frequently exposed to lead at small-arms firing ranges and whether current Occupational Safety and Health Administration exposure standards are protective.

These series of briefings were for members of Congress and congressional staff only. The report was publicly released on December 3, 2012 and can be found, in its entirety, on the Web site of the National Academies Press.
