ANSI Z Standards Guidelines for Implementing a Safe Laser Program With the increased use of lasers in the workplace, more and more employees are being assigned the responsibility of leading the laser safety effort at their organizations.

As you know, it is in the best interest of the employees and the organization to follow the standards set forth in the American National.

Despite the potential hazards, laser equipment can be operated safely if the proper procedures and necessary precautions are followed. To this end, the Purdue University Laser Safety Committee has developed this manual.

If you need additional information or assistance, contact any member of the Committee or the Laser Safety Officer. Get this from a library. A guide for control of laser hazards. [American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists.].

Laser safety is EVERYONE'S concern. A laser is as safe or as hazardous as the user–and that user's knowledge and skill, defines how well laser safety is managed.

Of all hazards, complacency is the most dangerous, and it is imperative to develop a risk management perspective on laser safety. Proper safety management requires a fourfold Cited by: ) serves as the fundamental guide to laser safety in the United States.

This standard describes criteria for evaluating the overall hazard potential of a laser system, a laser classification scheme which is based upon hazard potential, and specific control measures for minimizing laser Size: KB.

Laser pointers have the potential to permanently damage your eyesight if misused. Read and follow these safety precautions when using laser pointers. Before turning on the laser pointer, always be sure that it is pointed away from yourself and others. Never look directly into a laser pointer.
