This three and a half day Administrative Laser Safety Officer (ALSO) course is intended for individuals in research, education, or more complex industrial laser situations who are not interested in learning the mathematical details of laser hazard calculations. This course covers in detail all LSO responsibilities as required by ANSI Z136.1 “Safe Use of Lasers” standard. Topics include laser hazard analysis using EASY-HAZ™ LSO laser hazard analysis software, laser safety practices and programs for research, and a study of recent laser accidents. This course includes a closer look at all the important issues for Laser Safety Officers but none of the math. Instead you will learn to use our software to do complex hazard analysis the easy way. We also perform a detailed review of ANSI Z136.1 “Safe Use of Lasers” standard, reviews of the IEC 60825 International Standard, the CDRH Federal Laser Product Performance Standard and OSHA’s Technical Manual on Laser Safety Programs.

3.5 days, Monday – Thursday Noon
