Laser Safety

Status: in design phase
The Laser Safety module is comparable to the general Safety Report. Lasers that are used in an experimental set-up can be selected from the Equipment Registration & Testing module. Potential laser users follow an instruction and are tested with the Safety Instruction & Testing module and then given access automatically to the labs with laser equipment. The laser safety report comprises next to the equipment used, the schematics of the experimental set-up, including the beam path, the applicable standard operating procedures and a reflection by the researcher on the hazards/risks and precautionary measures. The laser safety report follows a workflow to the Laser Safety Officer in charge who can grant permission to do the experiments (“work permit”). Incidents with lasers can be reported by the Safe Incident Reporting module.
All actions are date and time stamped and logged by actor in the database so a full history of laser workers and events is available when needed.
