SAFETY FOR LASER USERS

Fears about safe use of lasers can put people off choosing a laser solution.  In this mini-workshop, experts discuss the latest challenges to the safe use of laser machinery.  The issues are not only eye-safety, but how to deal with secondary hazards like fumes and fire risks when cutting combustible materials.  If you need help in deciphering the requirements for issuing PPE to your staff, or just want to have a good overview of the issues involved, this workshop will answer your questions.
