Our last blog discussed the importance of air filtration in shooting range facilities, and we wanted to continue on with the topic to bring attention to another important point in that industry: government regulation.
While many facilities take advantage of how our products keep the breathing air safe, some might not realize the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has strict rules in place to protect the health of employees and facility patrons.
Just ask two workers at a gun range in Illinois, who “were exposed to airborne lead levels up to 12 times the permissible level,” according to an OSHA regional news release. For this particular case, more than 28 health violations resulted in proposed fines of $111,000, but others have faced more staggering costs for poor air filtration systems.
We want our products in these facilities—not just to grow our company, but we understand the value and importance of proper air filtration. We hate reading about health issues related to air quality when they could be so easily avoided, and we’re more than happy to work with and advise on the best possible steps to ensuring the ranges adhere to OSHA standards.
