Laser Safety Training Course for laser light show operators
Lasers can be dangerous and can cause hazards if they are not installed and operated safely. Standards, regulations, and guidance do exist for using lasers, but understanding what is and is not necessary for laser displays is a daunting task. Our Laser Display Safety training course is designed to teach you what's necessary to perform safe and enjoyable shows; including the laser specific laws and legislation in the UK/Europe and how it affects laser show providers.
The training course covers a wide range of laser safety topics targeted specifically for the light show and entertainment industry. You will learn about what the hazards are when using lasers, how to design safe shows and effects, along with what measurements and calculations are necessary to create safe audience scanning effects. You will also learn how to prepare risk assessments and work with the local authorities. This course also meets the requirements ofthe ILDA PRO Accreditation scheme, where successful completion of the exam can be used to support applying for ILDA Pro Laser Company status.
Any person or venue operating a laser display that has an output power of more than 5mW needs to appoint a Laser Safety Officer (LSO) who is responsible for overseeing the safe installation and operation of the laser display. The topics covered in our safety course have been designed to help the laser user ensure they have the knowledge required to perform safe and legal laser displays. The cost of our safety course is probably much less than what most operators would charge for a single laser show event; and with regulators having the authority to say no to a display if they are not happy with things, attending one of our courses and making sure you are aware of what's needed, can help you to avoid running into any such problems.

"Great course, very well presented and plenty of anecdotal material to keep it
real. Thoroughly enjoyable!"
"I really enjoyed the course as did all the other laserists!! James has a gift of planting massive amounts of information in minds without it feeling that way. I have come away from the course more confident and knowledgable. It was brilliant... can you do another one next week!!!!!."

- it certainly increased our
understanding of laser show safety. The section on audience scanning was very useful and I feel that
James succeeded in simplifying a complex subject which I hope ultimately will result in our being able to deliver safe audience scanning visuals."
