ESD: Laser Safety for Photonics and Telecommunications

Course Code: LS

Delivery: LAN, On-line


A comprehensive interactive multimedia learning program with certification intended for electronic operators, technicians, and engineers, who work with and around lasers.


The objectives of this course are for the participant to:

  • Understand light as energy and energy conversion;
  • Name the types of injuries that can occur;
  • Describe and identify laser classifications and warning labels;
  • Explain concepts related to the Nominal Hazard Zone;
  • Identify the structure of the eye and relate the structure to the potential for accidental exposure and injury;
  • Describe the concept of Maximum Permissible Exposure;
  • Describe appropriate safety procedures in the use of laser safety eyewear and clothing;
  • Describe the notion of optical density, wavelength dependencies, selection and handling of laser safety eyewear;
  • Identify correct procedures for placement, lockout and tagout, barriers and traps, and hazardous materials.

Qualification and Certification Testing

LearnTech® 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.

Standard Compliant

This course applies the ANSI standard classifications of lasers as specified in ANSI Z136.1 -2000.
