Free to use BIM project management tool provides step-by-step help to define, manage and validate responsibility for information development and delivery at each stage of the asset life cycle in level 2 BIM projects.
The risk assessment and procedures must be reviewed and if necessary revised at least annually or if there are significant changes.
Class 2 – visible beams only the eye is protected by the aversion responses, including the blink reflex and head movement. Assisting in preparing and keeping up to date University Policies and Codes of Practice relating to laser safety.
Ensuring a risk assessment is completed in an approved format and written procedures for use are produced prior to use for the first wn of any laser of Class 3R and above. The guidance also states that lasers which would not otherwise be accessible, 06825-1 example in a Class 1 product, but which are exposed during eb or repair of the equipment may also be ‘hazardous’ lasers for the duration of that activity.
They are therefore included in the main provisions of this Code. If a manufacturer is claiming compliance with EN Supersedes BS EN The Red document status indicator indicates that the document is an old version The document has eb been withdrawn by the publisher, also the meta data presented here may be out of date as it is no longer being maintained by the editorial teams at NBS.
Their 06825-1 commonly-recognised hazard is their ability to damage eyesight or burn skin, which can vary markedly according to the wavelength and power of the output. When operating laser pointers, users must ensure that they follow the manufacturer’s safety instructions, use them in a safe manner and do not expose themselves or others to the beam.
Reporting all lasers of Class 3R and above, and users of lasers of Class 3R and above, to the University Laser Safety Adviser, using appropriate registration forms.
Equipment classification and requirements. Using any Class 3B or Class 4 product requires careful planning and operation by a person that is knowledgeable of the risk, and what precautions should be taken.

Lasers emit radiation as narrow concentrated beams of light, not necessarily visible bx the human eye. Laser pointers Misuse of laser pointer can cause damage to eyes. For use of Class 3B and 4 lasers in industry, research and education the key measures to be considered are:. This is a reference that appears frequently when a person is working with laser products, but what exactly does it mean?
BS EN 60825-1:2014
The HSE guidance also identifies that some lasers are perfectly safe under normal conditions of use but have the potential to cause harm if used inappropriately, for example if held very close to the eyes. A user’s guide originally included in Part 1 of the British Standard.
Misuse of laser pointer can cause damage to eyes. These products may contain a higher powered laser as an embedded component but it is not accessible in normal 60852-1. The HSE guidance sets out the control measures to be considered on a case-by-case basis to reduce the risk of harm to the eyes and skin of workers 608255-1 as low as is reasonably practicable. Ensuring risk assessments and laser survey 600825-1 for Class 3B and 4 lasers are forwarded to the University Laser Safety Adviser with the laser registration form prior to first use.
This document defines things such as the 3m separation distance etc. Class 2M – As Class 2 but not safe when viewed with optical aids such as eye loupes or binoculars.
BS EN – Safety of laser products. Equipment classification and requirements
Guidance for laser displays and shows http: However, in some cases, other associated risks from use of the equipment may be more hazardous such as heat, dust and fumes. It is primarily a product safety standard that manufacturers must adhere to.
It is this product safety standard that defines what makes a bd applicable to a particular class.
Class 1C – Safe without viewing aids, lasers are designed explicitly for contact applications to the skin or non-ocular tissue. Document Status Indicators The Green document status indicator indicates that the document is: Many items of scientific equipment are Class 1 lasers and may also be regarded as be, for example spectrophotometers and particle sizers.
Under this Code of Practice, only Class 1 or 2 lasers may be used for demonstration, display or entertainment.
Code of Practice – Laser Safety
bss Other things EN They are responsible for. The safety standard also states what safety features must be included with each type of product based on the classification. Equipment classification and requirements http: Ensuring that information and precautions identified by the risk assessment, are available to laser users. The reference section of a library will also have access to them.
Liaising with the Head of Health and Safety and University Occupational Health Service on matters relating to medical examinations and health of registered laser workers. Again there may be more recent versions of the document.
They give examples of Class 1M, 2 or 2M lasers, for example some low power laser pointers in surveying tools. The written procedures for sb should be kept in the same area as the laser.
