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.
The Laser Safety Manual establishes rules and guidance for managing your lab's laser safety program.
Laser workers or technicians will participate in the laser safety training course when required to work with or around Class 3B and Class 4 lasers.
To set up training for Supervisors or Workers, contact the LSO.
To help you prepare a Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for your lab, we have prepared a template of what to include.
Safe disposal of lasers that are no longer needed requires following specific procedures established by EHS.
