Laser Safety

Laser warning sign

To protect personnel and to fulfil the legal obligation, the University must identify risks and take appropriate actions to eliminate or control these risks both optical and non-optical ensuring that work with lasers is carried out safely. To this end the three lines of defence are implemented; engineering controls, administrative controls and personal protection. It is the duty of every member of the college to implement the safety protocals when working with hazardous laser systems. Here you will find resources to help you work with laser systems safely. If you are required to work with, or in the vicinity of lasers in the University of Dublin Trinity College, you must become a registered laser user.
