OSHA Goes After a Range...

Read it: http://www.osha.gov/pls/oshaweb/owadisp.show_document?p_table=NEWS_RELEASES&p_id=22524 Interesting... Very interesting... Personally, I'm obsessed with my lead-levels since we're in the Midwest, we need to shoot indoors - there is a lot that folks can do to minimize their exposure. I wonder if this was at all politically motivated by Chicago?

ELMWOOD PARK, Ill. – The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited Illinois Gun Works Ltd. for 28 alleged health violations following a Jan. 21 inspection referred by the Illinois Department of Public Health that found two gun range operators were exposed to airborne lead levels up to 12 times the permissible level. Proposed fines total $111,000.
