Most lasers release radiation that is at risk and interacting with tissues or living organisms. Mechanisms can cause damage. Each of these mechanisms is based on
Radiation characteristics of the laser such as wavelength, laser pulse duration, power and energy density and, according to the type of biological tissue, the target is harmed. So it is necessary in the whole laser applications to reduce tissue damage, consider laser safety when using lasers at the level of laser users, patients, and laser systems used.

Laser safety is compulsory for all users of class 3B or class 4 open beam lasers and meets the requirements for laser user training of the American National Standard for Safe Use of Laser ANSI Z136.1

In laser safety course, you will learn the following in practice and theory:
