LIA to recognise finalists with ALSE Award at ILSC

The Laser Institute of America (LIA) will be awarding ten nominees with the Achievement in Laser Safety Education (ALSE) Award at the premier International Laser Safety Conference (ILSC) in March 2019.

The ALSE award recognizes organizations and their laser safety program managers for dedicating significant time and resources to laser safety, in particular: commitment to a laser safety program, a trained Laser Safety Officer, and ongoing laser safety education. With the industry’s market valued at USD730 million in 2018 and projected to grow to USD916 million by 2025 at 3.3% CAGR in a Market Research Hub report, the increasing relevance of laser safety in industry and technology is without doubt significant.

The award’s recipients are well known players in their respective industries—and world-renowned. Representing ten different categories, this year’s awardees include: Tesla (Automotive), Boeing (Aerospace), the United States Air Force (Defense), Mount Sinai (Healthcare Services), ConMed Corporation (Medical Devices), the Food and Drug Administration (Life Sciences), Sandia National Laboratories (Research and Development), Loughborough University (Academic and Public Sector), Qualcomm (Microelectronics), and FARO Technologies (Specialized Manufacturing and Services).

ALSE award finalists include NASA (Aerospace), Lockheed Martin (Defense), Ford (Automotive), Intel (Microelectronics), GlaxoSmithKline (Life Sciences), and Johns Hopkins University (Academic and Public Sector), among others. LIA applauds their efforts in contributing to laser safety.

The ALSE award recipients will attend the biannual ILSC conference on March 19th, 2019 to receive their awards, as well as present the unique features, challenges, and achievements of their laser safety programs. Additionally, the David H. Sliney Award will be presented to one of the ALSE award recipients for laser safety excellence.

The much-anticipated ILSC is right around the corner and will run from March 18th to 21st, 2019 in Kissimmee, Florida. The comprehensive four-day conference will include scientific sessions, Industry Business Panel Discussions & Presentations and Practical Applications Seminars (PAS) that cover all aspects of laser safety practice and hazard control.
