Laser personnel are required to be registered with Radiation Protection Services. At the time of registration, each employee's personnel category (incidental or laser) will be determined according to the types of equipment he or she will be working with. Required eye examinations should be taken prior to participation in laser work.
All orientation and training for working in the organization should also be conducted prior to personnel entering the laser environment.
