All educational, laboratory and research laser users must be trained in the safe use of lasers according to ANSI Standard Z136.5 ­ 2000 (American National Standard for Safe Use of Lasers in Educational Institutions) and as a requirement of OSHA (via the General Duty Clause). This classroom training process is in addition to any practical training previously received from faculty or staff. EH&S has developed a Laser Safety Training course that will take approximately two hours to complete. It is a classroom instruction developed to train personnel who work with lasers on the causes and effects of laser accidents and injuries, and how to prevent them. EH&S will present this course on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 from 1:00 p.m. ­ 3:00 pm in Room 117, Strathmore Building (501, Westwood Plaza) Room capacity is strictly limited to 25 trainees, so please sign up early. There will be no walk-in attendance. IT IS MANDATORY THAT ALL PERSONNEL OPERATING OR WORKING WITH LASERS IN A CLASSROOM, LABORATORY, OR RESEARCH SETTING ATTEND THE CLASSROOM TRAINING. A training certificate will be issued for the initial training, and refresher training will be conducted on-line in the future. Please email [email protected] or call the EH&S training line at 794-5328 to register for this mandatory training.
