Acknowledge ILDA’s Laser Show Safety - Basic Principles
These are excerpts from the 11 Basic Principles of laser safety. The entire document, with additional details, is online.
- Above any other considerations, a laser show must be safe.
- I am ultimately responsible for the laser show’s safety.
- I will not present a show which is hazardous.
- I will not allow others to override safety considerations.
- My shows will be continuously monitored.
- Laser safety standards and guidelines should be followed at all times.
- I will use backup methods to ensure if beams do not hit a target, they will not pose a hazard.
- Audience scanning requires the highest level of laser safety knowledge.
- Pulsed lasers should never be used for audience scanning.
- If I do not understand the above-referenced standards or if I do not have the equipment and procedures to ensure audience safety, I will not do audience scanning.
- When doing outdoor shows, I will not illuminate aircraft.
