This program manages the safety and regulatory compliance of all lasers on campus. Cornell’s Laser Safety Program follows the safety guidelines specified by the ANSI standards for the safe use of lasers.
Class 3B and Class 4 lasers must be registered with EHS, and facilities designed to mitigate the laser hazards. If you are commissioning or renovating a Class 3B or Class 4 laser facility, please contact askEHS@cornell.edu. The Radiation Safety group can provide assistance with hazard evaluation, hazard mitigation strategies, and suggestions for developing written operating procedures.
