Laser Safety

The Georgetown University (GU) Laser Safety (LS) program protects Laser Operators (LO) and the general public from the hazards associated with the use of lasers and laser systems. The American National Standard Institute (ANSI) Z136 series provides the guidance for LS program oversight. The LS staff ensures that the appropriate control measures are in place for both beam and non-beam hazards. The LS staff provides training for all LOs, which increases their laser safety awareness. When required, Laser Standard Operating Procedures are developed by the Laser Principal Investigator, and approved by the Laser Safety Officer.
