Laser Safety Training Courses for laser light show operators
Laser safety training is a key part of managing the risk from exposure to laser and other harmful sources of optical radiation.
LVR provides two laser training days, that are aimed specifically at the laser light display and entertainment industry. Both training days come complete with a full colour manual, certificate of attendance and the option to take an exam on the day - with a further certificate if successful in the exam. Refreshments and food are served during the day.
If you are unable to join us on specific advertised training dates, we do offer pop up training days in Cumbria at a local hotel - minimum number 4 delegates. Please contact us if you require laser training at a date to suit you.
This course is designed to teach you what's necessary to perform safe and enjoyable laser shows; including the laser specific laws and legislation in the UK/Europe and how it affects laser show providers.
The training course covers a wide range of laser safety topics targeted specifically for the light show and entertainment industry. You will learn what the hazards are when using lasers, how to design safe shows and effects, along with an overview of what measurements and calculations are necessary to create safe audience scanning effects. You will also learn how to prepare risk assessments and work with the local authorities. This course also meets the requirements of the ILDA PRO Accreditation scheme, where successful completion of the exam can be used to support applying for ILDA Pro Laser Company status.
Anybody involved in working with laser equipment & displays (however big or small) and those who are actually selling laser projectors to end users (Health & Safety and the Laser Safety Standard has specific requirements for sellers of laser equipment) are all welcome.
The advanced workshop is designed for people that already have some previous knowledge and experience in laser show safety. The workshop takes things further than any laser show safety course offered anywhere else in the world, so for participants to gain the most from it, you must have first attended the standard LVR Laser Show Safety course or feel you have sufficient prior knowledge; this ensures that everyone is equipped with the knowledge required to develop the necessary skills further during the workshop.
The day offers a unique hands-on practical workshop for designers & operators of lasers who want to produce effects with safe exposure levels, for safe audience scanning. Test and evaluate laser exposures from scanned effects, diffraction gratings, mirror balls etc using some of the latest available techniques including the Pangolin's Professional Audience Safety System (PASS).
