ANSI Z136.5-2020

Safe Use of Lasers in Educational Institutions

This standard addresses laser safety concerns and situations that may occur in educational environments. This standard is not a substitute for ANSI Z136.1 (latest revision)1 that is required for a full understanding of laser safety officer (LSO) duties and laser hazard evaluation. Environments characteristic of educational institutions, wherein lasers may be found, include teaching laboratories, classrooms, lecture halls, science fairs, museums, and student projects onand-off campus. This standard is intended for faculty and students using lasers at primary, secondary, and college levels of education excluding graduate level research laboratories that are more comprehensively addressed by ANSI Z136.8 (latest revision) and Z136.1 (latest revision). The wavelength range of interest includes the ultraviolet (UV), visible, and infrared (IR) regions of the electromagnetic spectrum; specifically, the wavelength range from 180 nanometers (nm) to 1 millimeter (mm).
