All laser acquisitions and operating procedures require approval of the Physics Division Director and a review by the Laboratory’s Laser Safety Officer.  .  Standard Operating Procedures (SOP’s) must be signed and posted on the door of the laboratory containing the laser.  The approved procedures must be followed at all times.

It is the responsibility of any experimenter to be aware of the appropriate safety procedures for their work. Contact the Division Safety Engineer for details.  All personnel using lasers must complete the appropriate training and have an eye exam before using them.

The ANL Environment, Safety and Health Manual details the requirements for safe operation of lasers in its Chapter 6-2, Laser Safety.
