Safe use of lasers and intense light sources in health care

Specifies requirements for the safe use of lasers and laser systems as well as intense light sources (ILS) in the treatment of humans for diagnostic, cosmetic, therapeutic, medical and dental uses in health care facilities, including hospitals, private medical facilities and dental practices, and the cosmetic industry. The standard explains the procedural and administrative controls necessary for the safety of patients, health care staff, maintenance personnel, and others who may be in the vicinity of the treatment room and in need of protection against inadvertent exposure. Engineering controls are an important part of laser safety and form part of the laser equipment or the installation. These are briefly described to provide an understanding of the general principles of protection. Detailed specification of laser equipment, installation and engineering controls are not included in this standard, such requirements being separately specified in AS IEC 60601.2.22.
