Laser Safety Supervisor

Dr Trevor Wheatley presents an edVirtus professional education course, Laser Safety Supervisor, the aim of which is to provide a basic level of understanding of the principles of laser safety practice to meet the needs of Australian/International standards for a Laser Safety Supervisor (LSS) or Defence Level 2 Laser Safety Officer (LSO2). The course introduces the generation and the characteristics of electromagnetic radiation focusing on optical frequencies, emphasising the differences between conventional light sources and laser sources in relation to their hazard potential. The course looks at workplace safety legislation, and, in particular how it relates to laser use in the various regulatory jurisdictions, identifying how laser safety standards apply. Additionally, the course focuses on the application of specific laser safety standards in the workplace and the requirements for appropriate policies and procedures. The course will emphasise real world examples, introduce laser safety terminology, the roles of the laser safety personnel, an introduction to the new Australian Standards AS/NZS IEC 60825.1:2014; AS/NZS IEC 60825.14:2011; and laser safety practice in the workplace.
