Laser Safety Training

California Campus Radiation Safety Officers Conference

October 2007



IEC 60825 Laser Classification

  • Class 1 Incapable of causing injury during normal operation

  • (Almost the same as ANSI class 1)

  • Class 1M Incapable of injury unless collecting optics are used

  • (Currently included in class 1 under ANSI)

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

  • (Same as ANSI class 2)

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

  • collecting optics are used

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

  • Class 3R Marginally unsafe for intrabeam viewing; up to 5 times the class 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 3B Eye hazard for intrabeam viewing

  • (Same as ANSI class 3b)

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

  • (Same as ANSI class 4)
