Introduction to

SHE Code 22

“Working with Lasers”

STFC Safety, Health and

Environment (SHE) Group


Why a she code for working with lasers

Why a SHE Code for working with lasers?

  • While lasers are a flexible research tool used across many disciplines they emit light at wavelengths spanning the ultraviolet to the far infrared.

  • The skin, and eyes in particular, can be at risk of injury due to thermal burns from visible or infrared laser beams, or photochemical burns from ultraviolet laser beams. In the eye these can result in permanent visual impairment.

  • The power of STFC laser beams, particularly pulsed lasers, can be so high that not only the main beam but weak reflections and scattered light can be hazardous.


Key features

Key features

  • Their flexibility and breadth of use, combined with the development of higher outputs from physically smaller devices, creates unique challenges to the control of laser hazards.

  • This code sets out a framework of appointed responsible persons:

    • Overall Laser Responsible Officers (OLRO);

    • Laser Responsible Officers (LRO); and

    • Laser Nominated Persons (LNP)

      defining their responsibilities for ensuring safe working with lasers.

  • Appendices to the code provide detailed and practical examples of safe laser working controls and practices.


Key points

Key points

  • Read that part of the code relevant to you.

  • Do not undertake work with lasers without the appropriate authority and safety measures in place.

  • Report all laser related SHE incidents or near misses to your line management and SHE Group through SHE Enterprise.


She training

SHE Training

  • 1 day Laser Management training events are available for Overall Laser Responsible Officers (OLROs) and Laser Responsible Officers(LROs).

  • To book this training contact your local SHE training contact: DL/RAL 8288; SO 2061; UKATC 8325
