Professional Support in Laser Safety

Half-day on-site course

This popular short course provides basic training in laser safety in the form of a clear but largely non-technical overview. It is aimed at those who work with laser equipment in any area of application and who need to know the essential issues of laser safety, to be made aware of the kind of hazards that different lasers can present, and to understand the principles of laser risk assessment and the safety precautions that should be followed.

The training will cover the following topics:

  • introduction to lasers
  • the properties of laser beams
  • why lasers can be harmful to the eyes and the skin
  • other laser hazards
  • safety regulations, standards and guidelines
  • the hazard classification scheme for laser equipment
  • the meaning of laser hazard warning signs
  • safety precautions and control procedures

The cost of this on-site half-day course is 650 plus VAT*.

*There will be an additional charge to cover the expenses involved in visiting your premises. This will be based on the mileage from our office in Cambridge and on any necessary overnight accommodation. We will be happy to provide you with a firm quotation, inclusive of all expenses, for presenting this on-site course.

The cost covers the preparation of the course (which we can adapt to suit your particular laser application), the supply of course notes (in printed form or on CD), course certificates (if required) and our attendance on-site to deliver this training.

We recommend that for maximum effectiveness the course be limited to no more than twelve people. Where numbers exceed twelve we reserve the right to charge an additional fee to cover the extra numbers and the additional material supplied. Please ask us to quote.
