Laser Safety Training - Level 3
Laser Safety Officer

Laser danger sign - person with the competence to analyze the risk and reduce it

14 hours (2 days)

Laser Safety Officer training is the answer to directive 2006/25/ec and EN 60825-1, which stipulates that employers using lasers of classes above 2M must have a person with the appropriate competence to ensure the safety of their employees.


Our program prepares you fully for these responsibilities:

1° Risk assessment: actively participate in assessing the risks incurred by workers working around laser machines or devices.

2° Implementation of safety measures: take all necessary steps to ensure the health and safety of workers working near class 1-4 lasers.

3° Continuous improvement: promote continuous improvement in risk prevention by analyzing work situations.


Laser Protect's Laser Safety Officer training meets the requirements of international and European standards, as well as the French Labor Code.

Course price: €1300 excl.

Format : visio-conference

Language: French or English

Next inter-session :

Personnel working near laser devices and having access to radiation levels above the exposure limit value, responsible for their own safety and that of others

Examples: HSE manager, safety engineer, laser manufacturers or laser machines

Requirements: none

Accessible for people with health conditions or impairments : people with reduced mobility can profit from comfort of their normal working environment thanks to our video-training; our real-life subtitles make it possible to follow the course by those that are hard of hearing. In Laser Protect we adapt our means of service for more inclusive environment.
