National Laser Safety Officer (LSO) certification program launched

Date Announced: 15 Mar 2023

New turnkey program announced for healthcare professionals.

Lindon, Utah, USA -- Aspen Laser Systems, LLC, an emerging global leader in the medical device industry with a focus on photobiomodulation, has announced the launch of a new Laser Safety Officer and Laser Technician program. In collaboration with Laser Safety Certification, LLC, a Phoenix, Arizona-based company, Aspen Laser will offer this program to all healthcare professionals.

The turnkey “3-in-1” training and certification system has been uniquely designed for owners and operators of Class 3 and Class 4 therapy lasers to meet the Laser Safety requirements of OSHA, ANSI (American National Standards Institute), and the FDA. 

According to Mark Bice, managing partner at Laser Safety Certification: “Laser safety in many healthcare practices is often overlooked, and requires more than simply posting a laser warning sign on the treatment room door and wearing safety goggles.

“We are thrilled for this opportunity to work directly with the Aspen Laser company and expand our outreach to the medical community. The Aspen Laser team is knowledgeable and passionate in providing the best lasers. Our customized training and certification programs for Aspen Laser will assist them in elevating their training to also be the best for their large and growing network of healthcare professionals.”

The new program covers all training for both a Laser Safety Officer (LSO) and a Laser Technician, consisting of written resource guides and online compliance courses with printed Certificates for each. Information regarding purchasing the new laser safety program can be found and requested from the Aspen Laser website at: aspenlaser.com/lso-kit.

“Owning and operating a Class 3B and Class 4 laser in a healthcare practice requires knowledge and compliance of national and state laser safety rules and regulations," states Charles Vorwaller, president of Aspen Laser.

“We have partnered with Laser Safety Certification as their programs are the fastest, easiest, and most comprehensive, in addition to being affordable. Each practice that completes the training reduces the overall risk from non-compliance and failed regulatory audits.”
