BS EN – Safety of laser products. Equipment classification and requirements
It is the responsibility of the appropriate academic supervisor to address any such problems. The safety standard also states what safety features must be included with each type of product based on the classification.
Laser pointers Misuse of laser pointer can cause damage to eyes. Class 4 – Eye and skin damage likely form the main laser beam and reflected beams. Want access to British Standards?
Under this Code of Practice, only Class 1 or 2 lasers may be used for demonstration, display or entertainment. The risk assessment and procedures must be reviewed and if necessary revised at least annually or if there are significant changes.
It is this standardised scheme that indicates the risk involved in using the product, and hence, what precautions should be taken when the product is being used.

Again there may be more recent versions of the document. Their most commonly-recognised hazard is their ability to damage eyesight or burn skin, which can vary markedly according to the wavelength and power of the output.
Ensuring that lasers of Class 3R and above, and their users, are registered on the University laser registration form and the University laser user registration form and that a copy is sent to the University Laser Safety Adviser. They are responsible for. Some scientific and technical equipment may also contain Class 1M, 2 and 2M lasers. Misuse of laser pointer can cause damage to eyes. Members of staff wishing to use a Class 3 laser pointer must first consult the University Laser Safety Adviser.
Class 1C – Safe without viewing aids, lasers are designed explicitly for contact applications to the skin or non-ocular tissue. Free to use BIM project management tool provides step-by-step help to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset life cycle in level 2 BIM projects.
Other things EN The ‘light’ produced by a laser, a form of non-ionising radiation, has a unique combination of characteristics that distinguishes laser radiation from all other light sources. Reporting all lasers of Class 3R and above, and users of lasers of Class 3R and above, to the University Laser 608251- Adviser, using appropriate registration forms.
Enn 3B – Eye damage likely to occur if the beam is viewed directly or from shiny reflections.
BS EN 60825-1:2014
They are therefore included in the main provisions of this Code. Liaising with the Head of Health and Safety and University Occupational Health Service on 6082-1 relating to medical examinations and health of registered laser workers. Equipment classification and requirements.
These lasers may cause fires.
Lasers 6825-1 radiation as narrow concentrated beams of light, not necessarily visible to the human eye. It is this product safety standard that defines what makes a laser applicable to a particular class. If a manufacturer is claiming compliance with EN For use of Class 3B and 4 lasers in industry, research and education the key measures to be considered are: Many items of scientific equipment are Class 1 lasers and may also be regarded as ‘safe’, for example spectrophotometers and particle rn.
Also known as IEC The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has dn been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS. Ensuring risk assessments and laser survey forms for Class 3B and 4 lasers are forwarded to the University Laser Safety Adviser with the laser registration form prior to first use.
Class 1M – As Class 1 but not safe when viewed with optical aids such as eye loupes or binoculars. Lasers come in various forms and have many uses at work, in the home and for leisure: Equipment classification and requirements.
The reference EN Guidance for laser displays and shows http: Equipment classification and requirements IEC The Bbs guidance also identifies that some lasers are perfectly safe under normal conditions of use but have the potential to cause harm if used inappropriately, for example if held very close to the eyes. Laser pointers are not to be modified in any way. This is a reference that appears frequently when a person is working with laser products, but what exactly does it mean?
