Laser Safety Training

Laser Safety Tutorial

Pro-Lite Technology in association with laser safety experts LASERVISION are pleased to present our acclaimed laser safety training. The training is presented at the Innovation Centre, Cranfield University, Bedfordshire.

Module A: Laser Safety Awareness Training

This module provides an awareness of laser safety and explains the risks, your rights and your responsibilities when working with lasers. The first day training provides an easily-digestible training on the basic physics of lasers, primary and secondary hazards, legal requirements, safety measures and the rights and responsibilities of laser users. The first day training is intended to be easily understood, low on maths and perfect for those working with lasers in industry, universities, hospitals and research institutes who wish to keep up to date with laser safety.

Module B: Laser Safety Officer Training

For those that have completed Module A, the laser safety officer training builds upon the general laser safety training and explains the legal and legislative framework that applies to the safe use of lasers, the responsibilities and the duties of the designated laser safety officer. Delegates will also be expected to complete sample laser safety calculations. Please note that it is a requirement for organisations working with class 3B, 3R and 4 lasers to appoint a named laser safety officer. Please refer to BS EN 60825 (part 14, Users' Guide) for further explanation.
