Is a safe work environment important to you?
It’s very important to us so we created a simple but effective laser safety certification program. Our program is designed for business owners, laser safety officers, welders, surveyors, aestheticians, medical professionals, research technicians 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. The LSC programs are online courses that cover the basics of lasers, the dangers they pose and the essentials of a safe work environment.

Laser Safety Officer
OSHA guidelines and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards state that your employer is responsible for ensuring the safe use of all lasers operated in your workplace. As the LSO, you will have many responsibilities which are detailed throughout this course.
One of your jobs will be to implement a laser safety program. Some of your co-workers may have only a basic understanding of lasers, while others may be in direct daily contact with and operate complex laser systems. You should tailor your safety program to the education and experience levels throughout your organization.
In addition to OSHA and ANSI standards, you may be regulated by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health of the FDA or the Council of Radiation Control Program Directors. Many states have laser safety standards and regulations which should be consulted when creating a laser safety program.
Although an LSO is only required for Class 3B and Class 4 lasers (and some Class 3R systems), it is important to know that states are creating new rules and regulations regarding laser safety. Therefore, your state may have specific rules for other classes of lasers. At the very least, employees working around lasers above Class 1 should have a general knowledge of lasers and the potential hazards they pose.
