Laser Safety Tips
>> Laser Hazards

The directed or reflected laser beam can be partially absorbed by the target tissue, thus raising the temperature of the tissue and potentially causing an alteration or deformation of the tissue. In addition to these thermal hazards, there can also be photochemical hazards when the the laser wavelength is short enough.
Other non-beam related hazards can include life threatening high-voltage electrocution, fire, and asphyxiation.
