LIA is dedicated to promoting the continued growth of laser technology and applications while ensuring that all of those working with laser technology understands the importance of laser safety. In an effort to reach this goal, LIA provides a variety of different laser safety officer training courses tailored to a variety of industries.
Some seasoned LSOs may think they have all the tools they need to keep their laser safety programs up to date with changes in the industry. However, the laser industry is ever-changing — and as advances are made, the need to update laser safety initiatives becomes even more important.
As an LSO, you might believe that it is imperative to complete the latest laser safety training in a classroom setting in order to fully comprehend the content. For some, this will be true. Everyone has different learning styles, and some people have a higher chance of succeeding in a traditional classroom setting.
With more laser technology being developed each year, it is important that up-and-coming laser safety professionals are in tune with new safety protocols. This encourages the growth of the laser industry, as safety standards are key to keeping workers, patients, researchers and other professionals who use lasers safe. But how do you know you are choosing a laser safety training provider who understands these changes and applies them to your coursework as soon as the information is available?
Having the right training and the right tools is essential to being a successful laser safety officer. The photonics industry is ever-changing, and it’s important to be informed of the latest news and updates. That’s why LIA is dedicated to providing both LIA members and non-members with the right training and tools to ensure their laser safety programs are safe and up to date.
