[*] The Laser Safety Training Program

[*] Lasers are at work in almost every human endeavor, and in some areas they pose serious hazards if not handled properly or if special precautions are not taken. The principal laser safety standard, ANSI Z136.1 Standard for the Safe Use of Lasers (ANSI 1992) mandates training for all users of Class IIIb and Class IV lasers, and recommends training for all users of Class II and Class IIIa lasers. The ANSI requirements are echoed to a great degree by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) in Publication 8-1.7 (OSHA 1991).

The specific training requirements are a function of the type of laser user -- for example scientists, engineers, production workers -- as well as the environment in which the laser is used, such as the laboratory, manufacturing area, medical facility, retail establishment, or service environment.

Companies with many types of lasers in use in multiple environments often need to have several training programs in place, each unique to a specific type of laser or application. This can present an additional strain on a company's training personnel and on it's financial resources.

Interactive Media Communications, with the participation of leading experts from IBM and Rockwell Laser Industries, has developed The Laser Safety Training Program, designed to address ANSI and OSHA guidelines and provide the essential elements of a comprehensive laser safety training program.
