As an LSO, you are responsible for not only implementing a laser safety program at your workplace—you may be tasked with training other employees on laser safety fundamentals as well. Your employees should view you as a credible source of laser safety information. Completing laser safety officer training online gives you the tools to both train your employees well, and position yourself as the authority on laser safety in your workplace.
While completing your laser safety officer training, it is important to consider your state’s regulations regarding the use of lasers. While many states have no such rules, those that do are usually focused on making sure that all lasers are registered and that their operators have the proper licensing.
