About the Workshop

The Workshop is primarily intended for laser safety officers, laser technology specialists and labour safety specialists and provides an opportunity to refresh knowledge and further learning, as well as leads to dialogue with colleagues and experts and the exchange of experience. In addition to presentations that provide information and clarifications on the new EU laser safety regulations, the seminar also includes topics related to health and safety in the workplace from a legal point of view, the biological effects of laser radiation on the eyes and skin, and thematic blocks dedicated to both direct and indirect dangers of laser radiation. The workshop program also includes questions about the necessary administrative and engineering control measures. Thanks to the interdisciplinary focus of the content, we would like to give you a holistic view of the topic of laser safety and organize discussions that accompany our seminar. We are sure that you will discover exciting new aspects related to laser safety.
