Training Requirements

The Office of Risk Management offers two levels of laser safety training:

"Principles of Laser Safety" is the main program that covers the fundamentals of laser operation, bioeffects of laser radiation, laser hazard evaluation, laser classification, laser eyewear, control measures and non-beam hazards. The course is mandatory for individuals working with class 3B and Class 4 lasers and systems. It is a 3h session offered three times per year at the beginning of the winter, summer and fall semesters.

"Laser Safety - Fundamentals" covers the basics of laser safety (e.g.: definition of a laser, laser classification, bioeffects of laser radiation). The course is recommended for those working with lasers of Class 1 to 3R, including laser embedded systems such as confocal microscopes. It is a 1h session available upon request (ask the Laser Safety Specialist).
