    Presented at ILSC 2007

    The international laser safety standard IEC 60825-1 is currently under revision. Since 1993, the scope of this standard was also extended LEDs. In terms of these optoelectronic devices, the new revision will provide the following innovations:
    LEDs will be deleted from the scope of the laser safety standard and the optical radiation hazard should be assessed with the recently adopted safety standard IEC 62471 for lamps and lamp systems. However, thi...

    CDRH Activities Affecting the Marketing of Laser Products in the United States
    Authors:
    Jerome Dennis, CDRH/FDA; Gaithersburg MD USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    This tutorial paper provides a brief summary of the CDRH activities and philosophies that impact the marketing of laser products in the United States. The paper contains background and history followed by a listing of the more recently published guidance documents with brief descriptions of the policies that they contain. Although the guidance documents can freely be accessed from the Internet, this paper can serve as a useful navigational aid in locating the documents that are needed by the manufacturers.

    Recent Laser Accidents at Department of Energy Laboratories
    Authors:
    Connon Odom, Los Alamos National Laboratory; Los Alamos NM USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    Recent laser accidents at research laboratories across the Department of Energy complex are reviewed in this paper. Factors that contributed to the accidents are examined. Conclusions drawn from the accident reports are summarized and compared. Control measures that could have been implemented to prevent the accidents will be summarized and compared. Recommendations for improving laser safety programs are made.

    Laser Processing Safety - Essence of Safety Requirements for Laser Processing, Worldwide and Recent Technology Challenges to Control Measures
    Authors:
    Thomas Lieb, L*A*I International; Elk Grove CA USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    Historically, CO2 and Nd:YAG lasers and workstations have predominated in our concepts of "high powered lasers". During the last few decades, safety control measures and guidelines have been developed, and the properties of the more prominent laser technologies were, naturally, used as the foundation. From laser bio-effects statements to complete vertical standards for laser processing machines, certain assumptions were made about modal properties and focus ability, and t...

    Unattended Laser Operation in R&D
    Authors:
    Ken Barat, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab; Berkeley CA USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    The ANSI Z136.1.2000 standard section 4.1.1.3 Unattended Laser Operation is a section that is made up of 5 paragraphs, which address unattended laser operations of different laser hazard classifications. Of particular interest to this laser safety officer is unattended laser operation of class 3B and class 4 laser systems. The existing standard calls for the use of the standard ANSI Z535.1 Danger sign with appropriate instructions regarding the hazards of entry into the space when no operator is present. The goal of this presentation is to present this is a common scenari...

    The Manufacturer's Role in Laser Safety
    Authors:

    Presented at ILSC 2007

    The laser manufacturer, as the laser industry leader, has a dual role in promoting and assuring laser safety. The first role, and regulatory mandate, is to manufacturer a safe laser product -- one that is compliant with national and international product safety regulations; however, to promote laser safety the manufacturer may need to do more than produce a safe product. Presenting a positive laser safety message to their customers is their second role and equally as important as manufacturing a safe lase...

    Laser Protocols
    Authors:
    Ken Barat, Lawrence Berkeley National Lab; Berkeley CA USA
    Presented at ILSC 2007

    The ANSI Z136.1 has several sections were the authority of the laser safety officer to alter or adapt the standard's control measures to their particular laser applications is outlined. Recognizing that ANSI Z136.1 is a horizontal standard and is a user guidance document; and as part of an on going philosophy of information to laser users the laser safety program at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a number of laser protocols, or codes of conduct. Each protocol outlines an evaluation of a section of the present ANSI Z136.2000 that are not completely compatible with a res...
