Laser Safety at CERN follows European Directives and the IEC 60825 standard. HSE works with the Departmental Laser Safety Officers to provide guidance and support for all laser related activities, which include Industrial, Metrological and Scientific applications. HSE organises Laser Safety training which is mandatory for every user of laser classes 3B and 4 equipment. Lasers classed as 3B or 4 are hazardous and must be notified to HSE, following which the installation will be inspected and the working methods verified.
