Laser Safety FAQs

Find the answers to the most common questions regarding laser safety

LSO Certifications are generally recommended to be renewed every 2-3 years, but no more than 5 years. 

There are several OSHA and ANSI Standards associated with laser safety.  They are the following:

  • OSHA 1910.132, General requirements
  • OSHA 1910.133, Eye and face protection
  • ANSI Z136.1 – Safe Use of Lasers
    • this includes sub-parts for healthcare, industrial, R&D, outdoor, and educational

Class 4 lasers are high-power lasers that can cause severe damage to the eyes and skin. These lasers are used in industrial applications, research, and medical applications.

ANSI Z136.1 is a standard for the safe use of lasers that provides guidelines for laser safety and hazard evaluation. This standard is used by laser safety officers and other professionals to ensure safe laser use.

LSO certification is a certification program for Laser Safety Officers (LSOs) who are responsible for implementing and enforcing laser safety standards in the workplace.

Our online courses can be completed in just a few hours.  This is a huge time saver over third party off-site training that could take days to get you the same information and results.

In the United States, lasers that are intended for medical, cosmetic, and other uses are regulated by the FDA.  The laser device manufacurer must get approval from the FDA, and often the end user must register their laser device with either the FDA or their state regulatory authority. 

Personal protective equipment (PPE) is often required when working with lasers to protect against laser radiation and other hazards.  Most laser applications require laser safety goggles specifically rated for the wavelength and power rating of the laser in use. 

Class 1 lasers are considered safe under normal operating conditions because the laser output is below the maximum permissible exposure limit for the eye.

Class 2 lasers emit visible light that can cause eye damage if viewed directly for extended periods. However, these lasers are considered safe as long as the viewing time is limited.

Class 3 lasers are moderately hazardous and can cause eye damage if viewed directly. These lasers require safety precautions and controls to prevent accidental exposure.

Class 4 lasers are high-power lasers that can cause serious eye and skin damage, as well as fire and explosion hazards. These lasers require strict safety controls and precautions.
