Paper Abstract

Classification schemes to identify laser hazards may give a quick insight into the hazards of radiation. However the most serious accidents involve exposure to high voltages. Besides toxic chemicals may present hazards in laser work stations. In this paper an overview will be given of hazards associated with working with lasers. Special attention will be given to radiation hazards of laser-doppler anenometry and laser particle imaging techniques using argon and copper lasers.
