You are obligated to designate an authorized laser safety officer for using the laser classes 3R, 3B or 4, and the responsible factory inspectorate (state authority for occupational safety) must be notified accordingly.
Who is a laser safety officer?
“A person who has special technical knowledge and knows how to assess and control the dangers; this person is also responsible for monitoring the protective measures against the dangers caused by lasers.”
Our laser safety training is based on the actual legal requirements like the following standards and regulations:
- EN 60825 (Laser safety)
- Ordinance on Protection of Operators from Dangers of Artificial Optical Radiation (July 2010)
- TROS Laser, formerly BGV – B2
- Guideline DGUV 303-005
The training to become a laser safety officer is given by a course provider who is qualified and certified by the professional association.
According to TROS-Laser the laser safety officer should have a professional education in a technical or scientific field or should be able to demonstrate an equivalent experience of at least 2 years each combined with actual activities on corresponding laser equipment.
Goal of these seminars is, that every successful graduate will be able to meet the requirements of a laser safety officer in accordance with TROS-Laser. Our laser safety training is addressed to future laser safety officers of a company, safety engineers, craftsmen etc.
