Detailed Laser Safety - Safety Archives

    The Safety Archives contains a listing of articles, papers and links relevant to professional laser safety issues.


  • Laser Safety Practices:  A simplified discussion of  the basics of proper laser safety practices with diagrams illustrating how to implement them.

  • Safe Audience Scanning:  This article, by By William Benner, Jr. Chair, ILDA Technical Committee, originally appeared in a condensed form in the Fall 1997 edition of The Laserist. The version that appears here, with the permission of the author, is the full 4000 word edition.

  • An Electronic Approach to Safer Scanning: To improve the safety of laser shows, especially in jurisdictions where audience scanning is permitted, it is desirable to monitor the behavior of the scanners electronically.  If a malfunction is detected, then the system can be shut down.  This paper covers the theoretical considerations of such systems.
