IEC 60825 Laser Classification

  • Class 1Incapable of causing injury during normal operation

  • (Almost the same as ANSI class 1)

  • Class 1MIncapable of injury unless collecting optics are used

  • (Currently included in class 1 under ANSI)

  • Class 2Visible lasers incapable of causing injury in 0.25 s.

  • (Same as ANSI class 2)

  • Class 2MVisible lasers incapable of causing injury in 0.25 s unless

  • collecting optics are used

  • (ANSI visible 3a with expanded or diverging beam)

  • Class 3RMarginally unsafe for intrabeam viewing; up to 5 times theclass 2 limit for visible lasers or 5 times the class 1 limit for invisible lasers

  • (ANSI visible 3a with small beam & ANSI invisible 3a)

  • Class 3BEye hazard for intrabeam viewing

  • (Same as ANSI class 3b)

  • Class 4Eye and skin hazard for both direct and scattered exposure

  • (Same as ANSI class 4)

      • What about other campuses?


Computer based training

Computer Based Training

  • LLNL (Hazards Control Dept) & UC system developed a computer based training for laser safety.

  • Available to the UC system with permission from LLNL.

  • NOW available to the CSU system on a SJSU server.

  • Cost to the UC & CSU campuses – ZERO

  • Do other campuses need this level of training?


Training process

Training Process

  • Learner logs onto the sever.

  • Enter a six digit (control) number to identify themselves.

  • Complete the modules.

  • Take a final examination.

  • Receive a computerized form stating they have completed the course and exam.

  • Submit the form to the LSO.

  • Training is now completed.
