Laser Safety program audit/review: ​

All trainings are conducted by experienced professionals with several decades of radiation and laser training. The consultant(s) will be onsite and will conduct training sessions to as many or as few members of the workforce as necessary (not to exceed 6 sessions/day dependent on training type chosen below). Training certificates and a summary of content covered will be provided upon completion of services.

  1. Conduct Laser Inventory with hazards analysis calculations.  An inventory can be conducted retaining the pertinent information for registration and hazard calculations.  All laser inventory information will be gathered from laser manuals, manufacturer website, or through the customer.  This inventory can include hazard analysis calculations for all lasers (“all lasers” refers to only those communicated to the consultant) and is required as per 105CMR 121.  Calculations will be based on the parameters provided to the consultant, in some cases if parameters such as divergence or diffraction are unknown most limiting conditions will be chosen.  A report will be provided per laser or per group of lasers for identical lasers.
  2. ​Conduct radiation source inventory (determine source type, license requirements, etc).  Required Semi-Annual sealed source leak testing can be conducted and measured
  3. Waste Inventory to determine proper waste sorting (inventory provided)
  4. Detector inventory to ensure no detectors are being used that are past due calibration​
