Laser Safety

Utah State University has adopted ANSI Z136.1-2007 as it's regulatory document for laser safety. Lasers are used for several research applications across campus. It is critical that all laser users practice the correct safety procedures when working around lasers to prevent potentially irreversible damage to the eyes or skin.
