As reported on the Seattle Times: Gun range under fire over lead in blood of workers | Local News | The Seattle Times Brief quote: Seavoy and Schmidt, both ironworkers, are among dozens of construction workers and firing-range employees who were exposed to excess lead, sparking multiple government investigations and a lawsuit. Three children and two women in workers households also tested positive for excess lead, suspected to have been brought home on workers clothes, boots and tools. A 15-year King County health official said it is the first case of its kind she has seen. A state occupational-health monitor called it significant, even historical. Eight former employees sued Wades in King County Superior Court on Tuesday, claiming that they were sickened by lead, that safety laws were violated and that wastes were washed down storm drains and dumped on a hillside. Construction workers have not filed a lawsuit. Probably a good reminder of the importance of washing your hands (and laundry) after a trip to the range, especially if you field-stripped your gun and cleaned it there too.
