This text which includes fundamental laser and laser safety information, as well as critical laser use information, is appropriate for both the novice and the seasoned professional.
New chapters and updates highlight the second edition of Laser Safety: Tools and Training. This text provides background information relating to lasers and laser safety, and examines the components of laser work and laser safety from a different perspective. Written by a working laser safety officer, the book considers ways to keep users, as well as those around them, safe. The author encourages readers to think beyond protective eyewear. As it relates to safety, he determines that if eyewear is required, then the laser system is not ideal.
The book is a compendium of procedures, policies and practical advice to be used by laser safety professionals. An international team of twenty laser safety experts and Certified Laser Safety Officers from the industrial, medical, and academia fields volunteered their time and effort to create this benchmark reference handbook.
