The dedicated Laser Safety Auditor for our organization retired last year. In an effort to meet the need to provide timely and effective laser safety audits, a new process was designed.
1. The Laser Safety Committee began incorporating 15-20 minute education sessions into every meeting.
2. Most of the committee members attended the Medical Laser Safety Training course offered through the LIA.
3. The committee developed a comprehensive audit tool in the form of a checklist that can be scored, providing a measurable document to enhance quality improvement.
4. The members of the committee organized into 2-person teams to perform the semi-annual audits for the organizations 22 lasers. The teams rotate their assignments each audit cycle, giving everyone a chance to audit all of the lasers over time, and providing new perspectives to the departments.
