The University uses a variety of lasers within its teaching, research, medicine and dentistry activities. Lasers emit radiation as narrow concentrated beams of light, not necessarily visible to the human eye. The optical and skin hazards presented by lasers vary markedly according to the wavelength and power of the output.

The document below details the management arrangements and responsibilities in place for the safe use of lasers within the University.
