Medical Laser Safety Officer Training

Instructor-led Training - Course Overview

Are you an RN, OR supervisor, surgical tech or training coordinator who has been assigned the critical responsibility of LSO in a medical facility? Designed to meet the special needs of medical professionals, LIA's Medical Laser Safety Course will provide the training you need to build and maintain a successful laser safety program.

As an LSO at a medical facility, you have a unique set of responsibilities. Not only is laser safety a top priority to protect your staff, but it is critical to protecting your patients. Our MLSO training program addresses the specific laser safety protocols as they relate to medical and healthcare environments.

This course meets all LSO training requirements as outlined by the ANSI Z136.3 Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care standard, OSHA, and The Joint Commission. In addition to the working knowledge you will gain, you will earn 12 Contact Hours, 1.5 BLS CM Points by the Board of Laser Safety, 12 CECs by the AAHP and eligible for ABIH CM points.

  • Discuss laser biophysics and tissue interactions
  • Discuss the ANSI Z136.3 Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care standard

All attendees will receive a course manual including a resource CD with useful LSO documentation forms, ANSI Z136.3 Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care standard, and a certificate of completion.

A certificate of completion is earned upon course completion; however, this should not be confused with becoming a certified medical laser safety officer (CMLSO). To become a CMLSO, you must meet specific requirements and pass a certification examination that is intended to promote professional advancement. This certification exam is given by the Board of Laser Safety (BLS).

The CMLSO examination is offered by the BLS immediately following this Medical Laser Safety Officer Training Course. This course fulfills the laser safety officer training prerequisite. If you are interested in taking this optional CMLSO exam, please visit the BLS to review eligibility requirements. All applications must be submitted to the BLS at least 2-weeks prior to the exam date. All fees associated with the CMLSO examination are to be paid directly to the Board of Laser Safety.
