Laser Safety

Lasers have become increasingly important research tools in Physics, Chemistry, Earth & Environmental Science, Biology and Engineering.

If improperly used or controlled, lasers can produce injuries (including burns, blindness or electrocution) to operators and other persons, including visitors to laboratories, and can cause significant damage to property.

Individual users of all lasers must be adequately trained to ensure full understanding of the safety practices outlined in the University's Laser Safety Policy.
