Laser Safety Standards for Laser Owners
Laser owners have the fundamental responsibility to provide for the safe use of lasers within their facility, to their employee users and to implement safety programs to adequately control the hazards associated with laser use.
In the United States, the accepted governing standards are the ANSI Z136 series, The Safe Use of Lasers. Additionally, the Federal OSHA (Occupational Health & Safety Administration) has adopted the ANSI-series standards as their governing regulation for workplace laser safety. Moreover, aspects of laser use can also be regulated at the state and local government levels.
Outside of the United States, international standards such as IEC 60825 series, Safety of Laser Products, prevail.
We recommend for laser owners to follow the governing standard in their country, state, and/or city to assure regulatory compliance and to provide the necessary safety programs to protect their employees and property.
Laser Safety Resources
Laser Institute of America
The Laser Institute of America is a professional society that promotes laser safety and education by offering technical conferences, workshops, publications, and training to industrial, medical, research, and government communities. You can purchase the standards referenced above from their site.
Center for Devices and Radiological Health
Center for Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) regulates firms who manufacture, repackage, re-label, and/or import lasers (and medical devices) sold in the United States. An overview of laws and regulations for radiation-emitting products is provided on the web site.
