Laser technology is beginning to be used in our society in a variety of ways. Many laser applications have been unbeknownst to the general consumer until the recent boom of 3D printing technology designed for consumer use. But laser technology has been used by the manufacturing sector for years, and engineers have been discovering new uses for lasers and developing new technology that has led to its adoption in various industries.
In a medical facility, it is incredibly important to uphold the highest level of safety when using laser technology around employees and patients. That’s why LIA offers laser safety training courses designed specifically for medical professionals.
With several training options that are available designed specifically for medical professionals, LIA is proud to be the go-to resource for medical laser safety officer training. Our training coursework is based on ANSI Z136.3 Safe Use of Lasers in Health Care, as well as AORN and ASLMS recommended practices.
As the international society dedicated to meeting the growing demand for continuous laser safety training, LIA is proud to offer a variety of coursework designed specifically for the medical community.
As a laser safety officer, you know how important a quality laser safety program is—especially in the medical field. Unfortunately, the passing of the Affordable Care Act has had a negative impact on laser safety initiatives, as reallocated budgets have depleted funds for employee education.
