SEMINAR – Training for laser safety officers

The proliferation of lasers in industrial processes makes it necessary to educate employees about laser safety.

Our two-day course is based on the current legal requirements (DGUV regulation 11, OStrV and TROS), so that the participants may be appointed as laser safety officer. In addition to the theoretical training, ifw Jena also offers practical training in actual laser laboratories to practice the implementation of the course contents (for example, selection of laser goggles and risk assessments).

The course can also be taken as a refresher course for previously trained laser safety officers.
