Indoor firing ranges are quite popular among recreational shooters and law enforcement personnel who wish to hone their shooting skills. The indoor ranges can be operated round the clock as they provide protection from inclement weather and can be operated under controlled conditions. However, it is very important to keep a tab on the firing range’s maintenance schedule, as ill-maintained ranges can cause health hazards from lead, noise and other exposures.
Human health can be grossly affected if the body is exposed to lead. Lead exposure can have adverse effects on the various systems of the human body. Lead particles may be emitted when bullets containing lead are fired. These particles may be inhaled, absorbed through the skin or may be ingested in some other way causing acute damage to the cardiovascular and nervous systems.
Many ammunition projectiles contain or are made of lead, and constant exposure to lead while shooting at indoor ranges that do not follow standard maintenance practices can prove to be hazardous for the personnel visiting these firing ranges. It is therefore extremely important that indoor firing ranges are regularly checked for lead and other pollutants in the air and on surfaces.
