Laser Safety

Lab assistant works with green lasers


Lasers have many uses and applications in research and development. MSU has a vast and continually growing inventory of laser equipment.

In order to follow applicable regulations and mitigate the unique hazards presented by lasers, EH&S offers laser safety training to all MSU laser users. Please reach out to to enroll in training.

Laser safety training is required for all users of Class 3B and Class 4 lasers. If you are unsure if your laser meets the criteria, please contact us for more information. It’s a good idea to complete the training even if your laser does not meet the threshold for requiring it.
