The annual LSO Workshop is the premier meeting of its kind in the US. It features presentations on topics not found in standard laser safety training, and solutions to real-world laser safety issues by experts in the field. Hear about laser and laser-safety topics from leading experts and receive the most current data on what is happening in laser technology and how to integrate it into a safety culture.

This Workshop, open to all, is primarily for individuals with laser safety responsibility and interest, in a research, academic, or medical setting, who want to update and expand their knowledge. Anyone interested in laser safety issues will not want to miss this one-of-a-kind workshop (see the Program link at left). The Workshop also serves as the official annual meeting of the US Department of Energy Laser Working Group.

Continuing Education Units will be granted through HPS, BLS, and AIHA, and have been applied for with ABIH, ASSE, CSP, and AORN.

Registration is $75 US, payable through an LBNL secure website (see the link at the left). Registration will be limit to 130 attendees.
