26 January 1979 The Model State Regulation For Laser Safety: A Discussion
Author Affiliations +
Late in 1971, the Conference of Radiation Control Program Directors foresaw the need to consider recommend-ing Suggested State Regulations for Lasers (SSRL) for uniform adoption by all states. This was occasioned by requests from many states who were finding an increased usage of lasers without commensurate effective controls. The committee orignally consisted of F. J. Bradley, New York; William Bryan, Colorado; Joseph F. Thiel, Texas; and Jack C. Rogers, California. Following Wm. Bryan's retirement he asked to be dropped from the committee. The committee's task was to develop a conceptual draft for the Conference to accept and submit to the states for consideration as their regulatory requirements on laser usage. Because of the interest of other agencies in this issue (Federal and other) contact was maintained with such agencies as OSHA, NIOSH, FDA-Bureau of Radiological Health, ANSI Committee Z136.1, as well as with individuals and interested organizations.
