Hazard analysis for laser and light emitting systems is required by Article 6 of the Spanish Royal Decree 486/2010 on the minimum health and safety requirements regarding the exposure of workers to artificial optical radiation (laser and light emitting systems). This requires expert knowledge and our hazard analysis is carried by mean of calculations in accordance with latest relevant standards from national and international technical commissions and standardisation organisations such as “Asociación Española de Normalización y Certificación” (AENOR), the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC), the International Commission on Illumination (CIE) and the European Committee for Standardization (CEN). For each of your systems, we calculate the following parameters.
- Maximum Permissible Exposure (MPE)
- Worker exposure (irradiance or radiant exposure)
- Nominal Ocular Hazard distance (NOHD)
This step is especially important as it determines the selection of the appropriate safety products and safety eyewear to be used within your organisation.
