ARVADA, Colo., Dec. 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- As 1st in a series, this teleconference helped firing range managers who face the problem of understanding the complex compliance requirements to adhere to OSHA regulations and environmental requirements for lead management and containment. The confusion of how to be safe as well as how to comply with the many regulations, poses a large issue with the vast majority of owners and managers of firing ranges.
Lead containment at firing ranges is consistently in the news, as evidenced by the Seattle Times Investigative Report "Loaded with Lead: How Gun Ranges Poison Workers and Shooters." (Read the full report at http://projects.seattletimes.com/2014/loaded-with-lead/1)
"We are proud to serve and protect those in law enforcement and the military that serve and protect us," stated James Barthel, MT2 CEO. "We are passionate about Gun Range lead cleanup, protecting our environment and protecting people from the hazards of lead. This is why we gathered these experts together and sponsored this event."
