Lasers are used in a variety of industries, from medical settings to construction, engineering, drilling, and more. Their high intensity light beams can cause serious injuries, including burns and eye damage, if lasers are not constructed or used properly. Lasers can also produce an atmospheric hazard when chemicals or biological elements are vaporized by exposure to the laser. To protect personnel and the environment, we offer comprehensive laser safety officer online training courses based on the regulations outlined in OSHA, ANSI, IEC, CDRH, and NFPA standards and codes.
Laser wavelengths can range from the far infrared end of the spectrum to the far ultraviolet end of the spectrum. Each type of laser has unique properties and uses in the workplace. Healthcare facilities and industries that operate high-powered lasers are required to have a trained laser safety officer. Their job is ensuring that safety regulations and safe work practices are followed by all workers.
Each online certification course is designed to help the laser safety officer understand the various hazards associated with lasers, as well as the administrative, engineering, and training requirements necessary for personnel who work with or around lasers. Course topics are divided into industrial and medical laser applications.
