Laser Safety Compliance
Compliance reduces the risk of injury, death, or property damage.
EHS requires Virginia Tech employees that operate, maintain, or service class 3B, 3R, or class 4 laser systems to comply with OSHA 29 CFR 1910.97 and the ANSI Z136 series of laser safety standards.
Follow 5 steps for compliance:
| ||Register all class 3B, 3R, & 4 laser systems and all laser cutters/engravers and all confocal microscopes with EHS.|
||Use the right codes and speed up procurement.|
| ||Attend EHS laser safety training + learn PI Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs).||Reference the complete Laser Safety Program (LSP) to answer specific concerns.|
|Respond to EHS laser compliance inspections.|
