LASER SAFETY CERTIFICATION FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

  • Which of your courses is best for me or my employees?

That depends on what class of laser is in use, what the application is, and what your role is.  If your lasers are class 3b or 4 you must have an on-site laser safety officer (LSO).  But it’s a good idea to have one on site no matter what kind of laser is being used and your state may require it anyway.  If you use a laser etcher, cutter or in fabrication, you should take our LSO course.  If you work in the medical field, you should take the Medical Laser Safety course as it is the most applicable to your field.  If you want to provide your employees with basic laser safety information, sign them up for the Industrial Laser Safety course.  If you want to have an LSO who then needs to train an unlimited number of employees in basic laser safety, order the LSO bundle.  To get started, click HERE to enroll your company and add students.
