Business owners and Laser Safety Officers
Is a safe work environment important to you?
Do you need an in-house Laser Safety Officer or want to become one?
Safety is very important to us so we created a simple but effective LSO and laser safety certification program. Our programs are designed for business owners, laser safety officers, welders, surveyors, aestheticians, medical professionals, research technicians, laser tattoo and hair removal and in any environment where lasers are in use. The incredible power of lasers to make once difficult tasks easier brings with it special hazards to workers.
IMPORTANT: OSHA does not certify, accredit or approve any laser safety trainers or training programs.
The responsibility for OSHA compliant laser operator training rests with the employer. Laser Safety Certification and the LSO course do not constitute a license to operate any type of laser nor does it guarantee your workplace will be free or laser hazards. There are no special or additional requirements to use this site. The person(s) responsible for laser training and evaluation are strongly encouraged to read and become familiar with the requirements of OSHA Section III: Chapter 6 – Laser Hazards as well as the ANSI Standards at www.ansi.org.
WHAT WE DO
You and/or your employees can be laser safety certified in about 1 hour. Enter your information on this page to get started.
Print your certification and wallet card instantly.
The course completed anytime, anywhere on an iPAD, iPhone, laptop, or any device with an internet connection.
Our Laser Safety Officer program is only $149 and can be completed online. If you work with class 3B or 4 lasers you MUST have an on-site laser safety officer to be compliant.
No costly books, videos or in-house training needed.
Why is Laser Safety Important?
OSHA keeps statistics for on-the-job injuries and reports 9 catastrophic or fatal laser related injuries since 1988. Additionally, according to Liberty Mutual, about $1 billion is spent each week on serious but nonfatal work injuries. Most workplace injuries are preventable and are due to a lack of proper training.
OSHA requires a general duty of care for laser usage. This means the workplace must be free from known risks and hazards. In the US, laser safety standards are set by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). Currently, compliance with these standards is voluntary, but OSHA does have the authority to step in when worker safety is in question. Employers could be fined if they ignore proper safety steps. Laser safety procedures must be documented and include audit reports, policies, equipment maintenance records and operator logs.

Is your workplace free of known hazards?
Lasers pose both occupational and biological hazards. Protection from non-beam hazards, particularly in research labs, include:
Adequate ventilation is required to remove noxious and potentially hazardous fumes and vapors like those emitted from laser welding and cutting.
Arc and filament lamps and laser welding equipment must be enclosed in housings to withstand the resulting pressure or explosion. The laser targets or any part which may shatter must also be enclosed.
Proper shielding from laser discharge tubes, pumping lamps and laser welding plasmas is mandatory.
Aside from radiation created by the laser itself, there are risks associated with some plasma tubes, x-rays and high-voltage power supplies like those used with excimer lasers. Lasers and laser systems which could generate any of these hazards should be closely monitored.
The electric power supply to lasers varies and must be in accordance with OSHA and applicable State codes.
Flame-resistant enclosures, particularly for Class IV and some focused Class IIIB lasers, must be used to prevent injury as well.
Bodily injuries from lasers and laser systems are eye damage and tissue burns.
Lasers are intense, highly focused light beams that can retinal scarring and even permanent loss of sight. They can occur in microseconds or over several seconds of direct exposure. Also, photochemical reactions damaging to the retinal tissue can occur when viewing things like solar eclipses and unprotected arc welding can occur.
