Abstract
The study was conducted to determine if the existing ventilation system in the indoor firing range at the CFB North Bay Armoury is adequate to maintain an acceptable environment for users. In this study the potentially hazardous levels of inorganic lead were generated during the firing of the .22 calibre rifle and 9 mm pistol. A further objective of this study was to characterize the potential exposure of range users in accordance with limits established by the US Army Health Services Command. Once the mean atmospheric lead concentration in the range is determined, these limits are used to set maximum allowable hours of exposure for each category of range user.
