WASHINGTON, D.C. — NSSF®, The Firearm Industry Trade Association, is pleased to announce it has added three professionals — Judyth LeDoux, Patricia Smith and Dale Krupinski — to its compliance consultants team.
LeDoux and Smith will join NSSF’s firearm retailer compliance consultants group, which offers expert guidance on federal regulatory compliance, and Krupinski will focus on providing expert guidance for Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) compliance.
“We are extremely pleased to have these three experts, each having decades of experience, amplify NSSF’s ability to provide guidance to federal firearms licensees and shooting ranges so they can be prepared for a compliance audit immediately or in the future,” said John McNamara, Managing Director, Member Services with NSSF.
LeDoux served as the Director, Industry Operations of the Columbus Field Division for the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) since July 2013, overseeing ATF regulatory enforcement operations in the states of Ohio and Indiana. Her extensive government career includes working for the Department of Justice, United States Attorney’s Office, and serving as Area Supervisor for the Columbus Field Division’s Cleveland III (Industry Operations) Field Office.
Smith has over 16 years of firearm industry experience, including as Industry Operations Inspector/Investigator with ATF. She conducted over 700 inspections of FFLs and worked as the Acting Area Supervisor for the Birmingham and Mobile Field Offices in the Nashville Field Division. In addition, Smith has trained Industry Operations Inspectors/Investigators and served as an Instructor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center.
Krupinski has over 20 years experience in recognizing, evaluating and controlling workplace safety and health hazards. For the last decade, he’s worked with the shooting range industry to assess OSHA compliance and workplace exposures to airborne lead dust, noise and other hazards. Krupinski previously worked for OSHA as a Compliance Safety and Health Officer. He is a board-certified industrial hygienist and safety professional, as well as an OSHA Authorized Outreach Trainer. He created On Target Safety Academy to provide training and technical occupational safety and health assistance to shooting ranges.
These new team members will assist with answering compliance hotline questions, conducting site visits through the NSSF Premium programs and with hosting live and online educational sessions.
