26 January 1979 Cost Saving Approaches To Compliance

Abstract
The costs of compliance to the BRH Regulations can be minimized by carefully choosing the approach. The paper discusses specific examples used to cut costs. It also outlines the steps for compliance to assist in budgeting for the effort. Companies building lasers into products can take advantage of the safety features built into the purchased laser to satisfy many of the performance features required. Reference can be made to the tests conducted and the reports filed by the laser manufacturer which minimizes the reporting effort. Safety interlocks may be avoided through the use of simple internal shields or by careful definition of the maintenance and service functions. Tests may be eliminated through analysis and the use of vendor data.
