About the Webinar
Laser safety is a key area of product safety design for product use, and entry into the U.S. and global marketplace. The widespread use of these devices, of all hazard classes, requires product designers to assure that the hazards associated with laser energy be are well-understood, and that the appropriate safety standard requirements and regulations are applied. This one hour webinar provides an introduction to safety implications associated with Laser Devices. This webinar provides a key overview of the following critical device design safety information and measurement methods for complying with safety requirements.
- Lasers and the Electromagnetic Spectrum
- Some Key Definitions
- Laser and Light Interaction
- Human Eye Structures
- Hazard Mitigation – PPE Eyewear
- Laser Safety Standards and Regulations – U.S. FDA CDRH, IEC, ANSI (OSHA)
Laser Safety Standards and Regulations
Information from FDA guidelines, OSHA regulations, industry standards and parameters established by various agencies are presented in this guide to human safety.
Information from 21CFR FDA CDRH regulations, IEC safety standards, and OSHA requirements are presented in this webinar that focuses on lasers and human eye safety.
Who Will Benefit:
Design and test engineers / scientists, technicians developing systems using laser devices, and regulatory & compliance safety engineers and measurement personnel.
