Lasers are ubiquitous in today’s society. From DVD players to laser light shows, laser range finders to kilowatt laser cutting machines: lasers and their hazards can be seen in many areas inside and outside of the work environment. Lasers are used in many different industries, including healthcare, manufacturing and research. The use of lasers presents several risks from both exposures to the beam as well as exposures to ancillary non-beam hazards. Even though EH&S professionals should have a basic understanding of the operation, hazards, and controls meant to prevent laser-associated injuries, it is challenging for safety professionals to gain exposure to these concepts. This PDC is designed to provide you with information about basic laser safety concepts.
