Lasers can be dangerous and can cause hazards if they are not installed and operated safely. Standards, regulations, and guidance do exist for using lasers, but understanding what is and is not necessary for laser displays is a daunting task. Our Laser Display Safety training course is designed to teach you what's necessary to perform safe and enjoyable shows. The training course covers a wide range of laser safety topics targeted specifically for the light show and entertainment industry. You will learn about what the hazards are when using lasers, how to design safe shows and effects, along with what measurements and calculations are necessary to create safe audience scanning effects. You will also learn how to prepare risk assessments and work with the local authorities. Any person or venue operating a laser display that has an output power of more than 5mW needs to appoint a Laser Safety Officer (LSO) who is responsible for overseeing the safe installation and operation of the laser display. The topics covered in our safety course have been designed to help the laser user ensure they have the knowledge required to perform safe and legal laser displays. The cost of our safety course is probably much less than what most operators would charge for a single laser show event; and with regulators having the authority to say no to a display if they are not happy with things, attending one of our courses and making sure you are aware of what's needed, can help you to avoid running into any such problems.

The one day course covers a wealth of information essential to anyone involved in the laser display industry that wants to ensure that their knowledge on laser matters is sufficient and is up to date with the latest developments including the new regulations that are known as the Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010, which become active in April 2010.  They are derived from the EU Artificial Optical Radiation Directive (AORD ), which is intended to set a minimum level of health and safety for workers across all EU member states.

This course also meets the requirements of the ILDA Pro Accreditation Scheme, where successful completion of the exam can be used to support applying for ILDA Pro Laser Company Status.

In addition to the subjects covered in the course, everyone that attends and completes the course is given a copy of our Laser Display Safety Handbook, and receives a Certificate of Attendance. Each Certificate of Attendance has a unique serial number on it allowing attendees to register free of charge to our new online database of Registered Laser Safety Operators.

The course has been written by laser safety expert and laser display designer, James Stewart.
The topics in the course have been designed to cover the specific issues that are relevant, and sometimes unique to laser displays. James is able to combine over 20 years of experience, with the knowledge gained from extensive laser safety research work he has been involved in.

The course covers the key aspects that need to be considered by anybody involved in working with laser displays, combining theory with practical examples. Gain valuable knowledge and insight into what is necessary to perform safe & enjoyable laser displays.
