OSHA Compliance Program Review

Ranges with established OSHA health and safety programs will receive a visit from our OSHA Compliance Team to review and approve the existing plans while offering suggestions and revisions to improve them where necessary.

Legal Defense Fund

Access to a legal defense fund that will protect qualifying shooting ranges against OSHA administrative actions at the state or federal level. This benefit is intended to defray legal defense costs incurred by proactive ranges that might face violations or citations following an inspection. The Legal Defense Fund does not cover fines or penalties that may be assessed against a range. A range is eligible to receive up to $15,000 of legal support to assist in contesting any violations in question so long as the range has the necessary OSHA compliance programs in place and has been granted prior approval from NSSF’s OSHA Compliance Team through mock audit visits. Other exceptions and exclusions apply.

Membership Eligibility

Ranges with no OSHA violations will qualify to receive support through the legal fund should a citation arise. Ranges with prior OSHA or EPA violations will only qualify for legal support on violations they have not been cited on in the past 3 years for OSHA.


Through this program, NSSF will provide up to $5,000 of financial assistance to a range to help cover the costs of consulting services along with any additional costs associated with any range work that might be needed. Areas in which Premium members can utilize this consulting grant service include onsite range safety assessments, range design or enhancement, developing Environmental Stewardship Plans (ESP’s), sound testing, legal assistance and range business plan development or review. Ranges that need other services outside of what is listed above should contact NSSF’s Manager of Shooting Promotions, Zach Snow to determine if the project is eligible for assistance through the Range Consultant Grant Program.
