Murray State University strives to provide the safest environment in and out of the classroom.  The university follows the American National Standard Z136.5-2000 which provides guidance for the safe use of lasers and laser systems in educational institutions.  The provisions of this standard are applicable to educational facilities ranging from grade school through college and university settings.  Engineering and administrative control measures appropriate for typical educational activities associated with lasers are established at MSU to ensure a sound laser safety program in the educational environment.


The Laser Operating and Safety Procedures are guidelines that are followed by trained individuals at the university.  For more information, please contact Dr. Jamie Rogers of the Physics Department at 809-4976.
