Environmental Health & Safety Laser Safety
Safe laser operation is essential to protect personnel from radiation, electrical shock, fire, and chemical hazards. Laboratories using Class III and IV lasers are to implement a written laser safety program as part of their Laboratory Safety Manual. Environmental Health and Safety has developed a Laser Safety Program Template for laboratories to use in developing and implementing their specific program.
If you have any questions regarding the classification, use of lasers, or the Laser Safety Program requirements contact EH&S at 509-335-3041.
