Paper Abstract

The Federal laser products performance standard requires that graduated degrees of protection be available based upon human access to the collateral and laser radiation produced by a product. Protective housings are required to preclude access to radiation whenever and wherever it is not required for the intended purpose of the product. If human access can not be reasonably prevented, then the safety related performance features and warning labels required by the standard depend upon the product classification. This classification is based on a graded risk of biological injury.
