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.

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
