Laser devices are used for teaching and research. It is imperative to know principles and practices of laser radiation to prevent eye or skin injury from the operation of laser devices. The purchase and acquisition of all laser devices must be authorized by the Laser Safety Officer (LSO) prior to purchase. All Class 3B and Class 4 laser devices must be registered with the Florida Department of Health through the LSO. The use of laser devices requires training and experience, and eye examination. The Department of Envriomental Health & Safety (EH&S) provides on-line laser safety training. The principal investigators provide hands-on training appropriate to the level of hazard to the laser operators under their supervision. EH&S authorizes eye examination. The Principal investigator makes arrangement to pay for the optometrist's eye examination charges and the individual schedules and completes the eye exam.
