Chapter 6: Laser Program Elements and Laser Controls
Institutions that have a Class 3B and/or Class 4 laser in use need to have a laser safety program. It is the responsibility of an institution's management to provide a safe workplace. This responsibility is generally assigned to the Safety (or Environmental Health & Safety, Risk Management, Safety & Security, etc.) Department at an organization. This group is responsible for compliance with any laser safety regulations promulgated by their state, federal, and local agencies, as well as applicable standards the institution adopts.
