Professional Development: Laser Safety Digital Badge Instructor-Led or Self-Paced


One of the most popular tools in digital fabrication, lasers have unique properties that make them especially hazardous without proper procedures.
Be sure your lab is operating safely by earning this digital badge that will give you in-depth understanding of how lasers generate light and how that light is used to mark or machine a wide range of materials. Check out the full array of options available for taking the class from our Self-Paced On-line version to our Instructor-led both on site as well as on-line! Lots of options to choose from so you can do what works best for you!

Lasers are potentially the most hazardous tools in a digital fabrication laboratory since many people are not familiar with the properties of laser light or the physics of laser-material interaction.  Digital Badge earners will:

  • Understand the fundamentals of laser light generation and how photons interact with materials.
  • Identify LIA and OSHA laser safety guidelines.
  • Have knowledge of the beam and non-beam hazards inherent to laser operation.
  • Be familiar with standard Control Measures and Safety Guidelines.
  • Know how to choose an appropriate safety program for their facility.
  • Taught by Larry Dosser, Laser Institute of America Board member and Laser Safety Officer.
