Photometric Testing in conjunction with Pro-Lite Technology and laser safety experts LASERVISION are pleased to present our acclaimed laser safety training at the Pro-Litre facility on the Cranfield University campus near Milton Keynes in Bedfordshire. The laser safety training in provided in two, day-long sessions: module A is an introduction to laser safety and provides and awareness of the subject; module B is an advanced-level training intended for those who have already attended module A or for those serving as nominated laser safety officers.

Module A: Laser Safety Awareness Training

This module provides an awareness of laser safety and explains the risks, your rights and your responsibilities when working with lasers. The first day training provides an easily-digestible training on the basic physics of lasers, primary and secondary hazards, legal requirements, safety measures and the rights and responsibilities of laser users. The first day training is intended to be easily understood, low on maths and perfect for those working with lasers in industry, universities, hospitals and research institutes who wish to keep up to date with laser safety.

Module B: Laser Safety Officer Training

For those that have completed Module A, the laser safety officer training builds upon the general laser safety training and explains the legal and legislative framework that applies to the safe use of lasers, the responsibilities and the duties of the designated laser safety officer. Delegates will be expected to complete sample laser safety calculations and these wil be audited by the trainer.
