Laser Safety Programs

The Office of Environmental Health and Safety will conduct Laser and Safety Training on November 28, 1995 for all members of the Penn community who use lasers in their research. The seminar will be held in room 216 Moore School from 10-11:30 a.m. Topics to be discussed include use responsibilities, medical surveillance, and recommended work practices. All faculty, students and staff who use lasers and have not already attended a University sponsored laser safety training program must attend training.

The training program is one element of the University's Laser Safety Program. The program also includes a laser safety manual, a laser registry, a medical surveillance program and a lab inspection program. Penn's Laser Safety Manual is based on ANSI Z136.1 (1993), a nationally recognized standard for the safe use of lasers. To obtain a copy of the manual contact OEHS at 898-4453 or consult the OEHA web site,
