Laser Safety for Photonics and Telecommunications
Course Code: LS
interactive multimedia learning program with certification
intended for electronic operators, technicians, and engineers, who
work with and around lasers.
objectives of this course are for the participant to:
light as energy and energy conversion;
the types of injuries that can occur;
and identify laser classifications and warning labels;
concepts related to the Nominal Hazard Zone;
the structure of the eye and relate the structure to the
potential for accidental exposure and injury;
the concept of Maximum Permissible Exposure;
appropriate safety procedures in the use of laser safety
eyewear and clothing;
the notion of optical density, wavelength dependencies,
selection and handling of laser safety eyewear;
correct procedures for placement, lockout and tagout,
barriers and traps, and hazardous materials.
and Certification Testing
training incorporates interactive learning checks throughout
the instructional sequences. Certification tests are criterion-referenced
and module-based with feedback on every response for enhanced
learning. The tests also include a scorebar to provide the
learner with continuous status information. Administrative
access to dates and scores of tests, certifications, and re-certifications
is compliant with ISO quality-standards requirements.
course applies the ANSI standard classifications of lasers
as specified in ANSI Z136.1 -2000.
