Document Status Indicators The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is: Class 2M – As Class 2 but not safe when viewed with optical aids such as eye loupes or binoculars. It is however useful for end users to be aware of though, as it allows them to check with their supplier that the product being purchased is compliant and legal to use. Class 3B – Eye damage eh to occur if the hs is viewed directly or from shiny reflections.
The written procedures for use should be kept in the same area as the laser. Of most importance to the end user is the laser classification scheme it defines. Some scientific and technical equipment may also contain Class 1M, 2 and 2M lasers. For use of Class 3B and 4 lasers 60825- industry, research and education the key measures to be considered are: This document defines things such as the 3m separation distance etc.
Under this Code of Practice, only Class 1 or 2 lasers may be used for demonstration, display or entertainment. It is this product safety standard that defines what makes a laser applicable to a particular class.

Equipment classification and requirements. 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.
Misuse 6025-1 laser pointer can cause damage to eyes.
These lasers may cause fires. 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.

The safety standard also states what safety features must be included with each type of product based on the classification. Class 1M – Bx Class 1 but not safe when viewed with optical aids such as eye loupes or binoculars. Ensuring a risk assessment is completed in an approved format and written procedures for use are produced prior to use for the first time of any laser 660825-1 Class 3R and above.
Again there may be more recent versions of the document. Ensuring a laser survey form is completed for each laser of Class 3R and above prior to first use and on an annual basis thereafter.
BS EN – Safety of laser products. Equipment classification and requirements
They are responsible for. Lasers emit radiation as narrow concentrated beams of light, not necessarily visible to the human eye. It is primarily a product safety standard that manufacturers must adhere to. Class 1 – Safe under reasonably foreseeable conditions of operation. Laser pointers are not to be modified in any way. Laser pointers Misuse of laser pointer can cause damage to eyes.
What the standard is not, is a user guide for laser safety. The reference section of a library will also have access to them. The Amber document status indicator indicates that some caution is needed sb using this document – it is either: Lasers come in various forms and have many uses at work, in the home and for leisure: Using any Class 3B or Class 4 product requires careful planning and operation by a person that is knowledgeable of the risk, and what precautions should be taken.
Addressing any problems notified by the Laser Safety Supervisor that arise from the annual survey. Many items of scientific equipment are Class 1 lasers and may also be regarded as ‘safe’, for example spectrophotometers and particle sizers. The ‘light’ produced by a laser, a form of rn radiation, has a unique combination 608825-1 characteristics that distinguishes laser radiation from all other light sources. They give examples of Class 1M, 2 or 2M lasers, for example some low power laser pointers in surveying tools.
