(LS)Laser Safety

Lasers emit high intensity visible and invisible optical radiation which are widely used in the industrial, medical, aesthetic, telecommunication, and education domains. Lasers may present hazards to operators and working staff. Serious risks of injury to eye and skin can result from lack of awareness of laser safety.
For public safety concern, The Hong Kong SAR government published the “Laser Safety Guidance Notes for Industry, Display and Entertainment” in March 2005. Department of Health has launched the Medical Device Administrative Control System in 2005 to regulate and promote the safe use of medical devices (including laser devices) in Hong Kong.
This course is intended to provide all personnel involved with industrial, educational, and medical applications of lasers with a basic understanding of the safe use of lasers. Safety professionals, occupational health nurses, laser operators and laser repair technicians required to perform laser safety practice will benefit from this course.
