Indoor shooting ranges can be dangerous environments for students and trainees alike. Aside from the risk of firearms injury the hidden dangers of noise and lead poisoning are prevalent every day.
Increasingly senior officers and decision makers are being held accountable for the ‘wear and tear’ on trainers and instructors caused by the ever present risk of ear and lung damage.
Traditionally little ongoing monitoring is carried out however modern ranges are increasingly being equipped with advanced
air handling and noise suppressions systems to at least try and monitor and control the problem.
This however leaves a large gap for those existing public sector ranges where limited budgets mean the opportunity of retrofitting massive equipment is limited.
