Advising officers in charge of design and construction of new buildings and the modification of existing buildings on matters affecting laser safety. Some scientific and technical equipment may also contain Class 1M, 2 and 2M lasers. Document Status Indicators The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is: Their most commonly-recognised hazard is their ability to damage eyesight or burn skin, which can vary markedly according to the wavelength and power of the output.
The highest risk category defined in the standard is Class 4, which pose a serious risk of eye damage from both direct and indirect reflections, is able to burn skin, and act as an ignition source for materials.
Laser pointers Misuse of laser pointer can cause damage to eyes. Class 1C – Safe without viewing aids, lasers are designed explicitly for contact applications to the skin or non-ocular tissue. Also known as IEC Addressing any recommendations made by the Head of Health and Safety for remedial action following the annual audit.
If a manufacturer is claiming compliance with EN Under this Code of Practice, only Class 1 or 2 lasers may be used for demonstration, display or entertainment. The risk assessment and procedures must be reviewed and if necessary revised 600825-1 least annually or if there are significant changes. The reference EN Many items of scientific equipment are Bw 1 lasers and may also be regarded as ‘safe’, for example spectrophotometers and particle sizers.
Ensuring that lasers of Class 3R and above, and their users, are registered on the University laser registration form and the University laser user registration form 60285-1 that a copy is sent to the University Laser Safety Adviser.
The HSE guidance also identifies that some lasers are perfectly safe under normal conditions of use but have the potential to cause harm if used inappropriately, for example if held very close to the eyes. The reference section of a library will also have access to them. Class 1 – Safe under reasonably foreseeable conditions of operation. Responsibilities under this Code of Practice Faculty Operating Officers and Directors of Professional Services are responsible for Ensuring there is an up-to-date list of all scientific and technical lasers and laser users.
Code of Practice – Laser Safety
Of most importance to the end user is the laser classification scheme it defines. Class 2M – As Class 2 but not safe when viewed with optical aids such as eye loupes or binoculars. Supersedes BS EN This document defines things such as the 3m separation distance etc. Laser pointers wn not to be modified in any way.
The Amber document status indicator indicates that some caution is needed when using this document – it is either: Class 4 – Eye and skin damage 60852-1 form the main laser beam and reflected beams. A user’s guide originally included in Part 1 of the British Standard.
Free to use BIM project management tool provides step-by-step help to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset life cycle in level 2 BIM projects. For use of Class 3B and 4 lasers in industry, research and education the key measures to be considered are: For use of Class 3B and 4 lasers in industry, research and education the key measures to be considered are:.
It is primarily a product safety standard that manufacturers must adhere to. Equipment classification and requirements http: Want access to British Standards? This is a reference that appears frequently when a person is working with laser products, but what exactly does it mean?
They give examples of Class 1M, 2 or 2M lasers, for example some low power laser pointers in surveying tools. Ensuring that information and precautions identified by the risk assessment, are available to laser users.
