RLI Teams With Honeywell for ILSCŪ

RLI has joined Honeywell as Platinum Sponsors of the International Laser Safety Conference (ILSCŪ), being held from March 20-23, 2017, in Atlanta, GA.

The International Laser Safety Conference (ILSCŪ) is a comprehensive four-day conference covering all aspects of laser safety practice and hazard control. Scientific sessions will address developments in regulatory, mandatory and voluntary safety standards for laser products and for laser use. The Practical Applications Seminars (PAS) complement the Scientific Sessions by exploring everyday scenarios that the LSO and MLSO may encounter. Professionals in all fields and applications will find ILSC a tremendous source for information and networking opportunities.

Look for us at our booth during the evening reception on March 21, 2017.

Laser Safety Training Courses
Developed and taught by many of the leading experts in the field, RLI training courses have been recognized as the best in the industry. RLI also offers Online Laser Safety Courses and On-site Laser Safety Courses that can be held at your facility.

Industrial Laser Safety Courses
  L-113 Principles of Lasers 1 Day  
  This one-day introductory course is designed for those responsible for operating and maintaining laser systems, providing a solid introduction to lasers. It also provides a knowledge base for those who plan to continue their professional development and will be attending the Laser Safety Officer (LSO) course. In addition, the course benefits those who have management responsibility for lasers and/or laser safety.
Course Dates:
Feb 06, 2017 Phoenix, AZ
    Apr 03, 2017   Detroit, MI    
L-222 Laser Safety Officer 4 Days  
  This intermediate level course provides an in-depth, analytical review of the LSO duties and requirements of ANSI Z136.1, OSHA, FDA-CDRH and state laser standards. After a review of the biological basis, the student will complete an in-depth computation workshop that covers MPE, AEL, NHZ and OD factors.

Course Dates:
    Feb 07 - 10, 2017   Phoenix, AZ    
    Apr 04 - 07, 2017   Detroit, MI    
L-250 Principles of Lasers & Laser Safety Officer Course 5 Days  

This five-day course is designed for those persons designated as the Laser Safety Officer (LSO) for their facility who also need a solid introduction to lasers.

The first day of the course provides a general overview of types of lasers and how laser light differs from that produced by the sun and other "ordinary" light sources. The participant also learns about laser operation, terminology and beam properties. Common types of lasers including specific gas, solid-state, and diode lasers are discussed and an overview of laser optics and beam delivery systems is included. The discussion of basic laser operation emphasizes those laser characteristics that are important for the LSO to understand in order to perform the laser hazard evaluation.

The next four days of the course consist of an in-depth, analytical presentation of the LSO’s duties and requirements according to ANSI Z136.1, OSHA, FDA-CDRH and state laser standards. After a review of the biological basis, the student will complete an in-depth computational workshop that covers MPEs, AELs, NHZs and ODs. An in-depth discussion of the control of laser hazards is provided.

Course Dates:
    Feb 06 - 10, 2017   Phoenix, AZ    
    Apr 03 - 07, 2017   Detroit, MI    
Product Focus
Laser Protective Windows

Laser Safety Officers have the option of using laser protective windows instead of eyewear to protect those who are required to watch laser activities.

Windows are available for most common lasers such as Nd:YAG, Argon, CO2, Excimer, HeNe, Diodes, Ruby and Broadband in a standard size of 2 feet x 3 feet, but can be cut to any smaller size upon request.

In some cases, larger sizes may be available as a special order.

For more information regarding laser protective windows, please contact Pat Cogan via email or by calling (800) 94-LASER.
