Lasers in the Classroom - Summary

As the use and understanding of lasers increases so does the likelihood of finding a laser in the classroom. This increased availability may also promote complacency with regard to the safety hazards posed by a laser as their use becomes more common place. A key point to remember is that all lasers have the potential to cause serious harm. No laser is risk free. Injury can occur as a result of equipment malfunction or mishandling. As a result, all lasers should be handled with care and respect to prevent accidental injury.
