RLI Teams With Honeywell for ILSC®

RLI has joined Honeywell as Platinum Sponsors of the International Laser Safety Conference (ILSC®), held this year from March 20-23, 2017, in Atlanta, GA.

The International Laser Safety Conference (ILSC®) is a comprehensive four-day conference covering all aspects of laser safety practice and hazard control. Scientific sessions will address developments in regulatory, mandatory and voluntary safety standards for laser products and for laser use. The Practical Applications Seminars (PAS) complement the Scientific Sessions by exploring everyday scenarios that the LSO and MLSO may encounter. Professionals in all fields and applications will find ILSC a tremendous source for information and networking opportunities.

Industrial Laser Safety Training Courses
Developed and taught by the leading experts in the field, RLI training courses have been recognized as the best in the industry. RLI also offers Online Industrial Laser Safety Courses and On-site Industrial Laser Safety Officer Courses that can be held at your facility.

For more information regarding our training courses, please contact a training representative via email or call us at (800) 94-LASER.
Industrial Laser Safety Courses
  L-113 Principles of Lasers 1 Day  
  This one-day introductory course is designed for those responsible for operating and maintaining laser systems, providing a solid introduction to lasers. It also provides a knowledge base for those who plan to continue their professional development and will be attending the Laser Safety Officer (LSO) course. In addition, the course benefits those who have management responsibility for lasers and/or laser safety.
Course Dates:
    Aug 22, 2016   Cincinnati, OH    
    Oct 24, 2016   Phoenix, AZ    
L-222 Laser Safety Officer 4 Days  
  This intermediate level course provides an in-depth, analytical review of the LSO duties and requirements of ANSI Z136.1, OSHA, FDA-CDRH and state laser standards. After a review of the biological basis, the student will complete an in-depth computation workshop that covers MPE, AEL, NHZ and OD factors.

Course Dates:
    Aug 23 - 26, 2016   Cincinnati, OH    
    Oct 25 - 28, 2016   Phoenix, AZ    
L-250 Principles of Lasers & Laser Safety Officer Course 5 Days  

This five-day course is designed for those persons designated as the Laser Safety Officer (LSO) for their facility who also need a solid introduction to lasers.

The first day of the course provides a general overview of types of lasers and how laser light differs from that produced by the sun and other "ordinary" light sources. The participant also learns about laser operation, terminology and beam properties. Common types of lasers including specific gas, solid-state, and diode lasers are discussed and an overview of laser optics and beam delivery systems is included. The discussion of basic laser operation emphasizes those laser characteristics that are important for the LSO to understand in order to perform the laser hazard evaluation.

The next four days of the course consist of an in-depth, analytical presentation of the LSO’s duties and requirements according to ANSI Z136.1, OSHA, FDA-CDRH and state laser standards. After a review of the biological basis, the student will complete an in-depth computational workshop that covers MPEs, AELs, NHZs and ODs. An in-depth discussion of the control of laser hazards is provided.

Course Dates:
    Aug 22 - 26, 2016   Cincinnati, OH    
    Oct 24 - 28, 2016   Phoenix, AZ    
Product Focus

Laser Sentry Entryway Control System

Rockwell Laser Industries offers a broad line of control systems and accessories that allow the facility Laser Safety Officer to more easily implement the ANSI Z136 based requirements for a laser controlled area. The cornerstone of these products is the RLI Laser Sentry™ Entryway Control Unit, a microprocessor based entryway control system.

Laser Sentry accessories include warning signs such as the the RLI Bi-Lume™ or Tri-Lume™ along with the traditional illuminated warning sign. There are also a wide selection of entryway control components including entryway numerical access and push button entryway controls, doorway interlocks, magnetic door locks, emergency control switches and other similar entryway and area controls.

A typical installation may be completed in a few hours with a single Laser Sentry™ control unit, a few standard burglar alarm/door access control components, and multi-conductor low voltage control wire.
