Introductory Laser Safety Training

This training is available on-line via MOODLE at the following link:

The course is an introductory session that involves several information sections, a short film and a 10-question test that, when successfully completed, enables the worker to proceed to the next stage of being locally trained in the specific laser systems they need to use. The latter is the responsibility of the worker's PI/Supervisor.

Course Objectives:

The student will gain knowledge of:

  • Laser classification and associated hazards

  • The typical safety precautions that need to be taken when working with the more hazardous classes of laser (also aiming to comply with University and sector guidance)

  • How to do MPE calculations and select appropriate eye wear

  • How laser safety is managed at the University

Who should attend: all new laser users, particularly those aiming to use Class 3B or 4 lasers (staff and students).
