Laser safety in the research lab: Risk assessment and hazard awareness training



An interactive and adaptive CD.

This interactive and adaptive video utilities innovative delivery methods to help train students working with lasers to improve their laser safety. Post graduates and research fellows work with many different types of lasers in a variety of different experimental conditions. As these lasers are often more powerful than those uses at the undergraduate level additional safety training is required. The interactive video comprises of:

1) Footage illustrating poor practice in the laser lab
2) Video clips, photographs and text outlining better practice
3) A Risk Assessment training tool

It was designed by experts from the departments of Physics and Astronomy, Psychology, Electronics and Computer Science, Civil Engineering, the Optoelectronics Research Centre, and the Health and Safety Office at the University of Southampton
