ANSI Z136.1 “Safe Use of Lasers” standard states that an organization using lasers has the fundamental responsibility to ensure their safe use. A laser safety program needs to be in place with established control measures – especially for Class 3B and 4 lasers. Training for end users as well as a trained Laser Safety Officer (LSO) is also required. Test your knowledge – take our LaserSmart quiz:
Consider obtaining a copy of the ANSI standard if you don’t already have one. This document is the foundation of any laser safety program.
