This standard provides guidance for the safe use of lasers in an outdoor environment, e.g., construction, displays/laser lightshows, scientific/astronomical research, and military (DoE/DoD).
Additional considerations include:
- Nominal Ocular Hazard Distance (NOHD)
- Nominal Hazard Zone (NHZ)
- Specular Reflection
- Eye Protection, including optically-aided viewing
- Inclement Weather
- Visual Interference Hazards and Zones
The Z136.6 contains numerous sample forms, e.g., suspected exposure questionnaire, letters to clearinghouse programs, and laser configurations.
