Paper Abstract

The paper is focused on safety of exploitation of optical transmission devices in free space. The subjects concerning propagation of "open" optical stream and its' possible dangerous influence on environment, mainly living organisms are discussed. An attempt to evaluate an installation and exploitation of transmitting devices was made, concerning dangers, requirements, recommendations and restrictions, concluding from accepted safety standards (IEC 60825- 1 :2005, EN 60825-1 :2005 and in Poland PN-EN 60825-1 :2005 "Safety of laser devices - Equipment classification, requirements and user's guide"; IEC 60825-12:2004, EN 60825-12:2005 and in Poland PN-EN 60825-12:2005 "Safety of free space optical communication systems, used in data transmission").
