Beschrijving

The use of laser systems is on the rise. Lasers are used e.g. in measuring instruments and scanners, to create markings, or for industrial applications such as laser welting, laser cutting, or laser cooling. Working with lasers is not without risks, however. Proper risk control often requires specific safety measures. The course Laser safety gives you insight into the possible dangers of working with lasers. You will learn e.g. about technical and organizational measures that are necessary for a safe work space. Additionally, ths laser safety course offers a sound basis for performing risk analyses.
