Industrial Laser Safety Officer – Refresher Training

Refresher training for laser safety officers is recommended on average every 3 years.

This laser safety refresher training course is specifically designed to keep industrial laser safety officers of current in the utility of the ANSI Z136.9 standard and provide them with appropriate benchmark tools to effect laser safety in the workplace. This course refreshes core principles for the safe use of lasers in manufacturing environments, reviews nominal hazard assessments for common industrial lasers, and works through a nominal industrial laser audit form and laser safety data sheet.

Prerequisite: Prior LSO training per ANSI Z136.1 or Z136.9
