Laser Safety Forum

Annual meetings of the Laser Safety Forum are held every September. This year the event will be a hybrid meeting, allowing participants to attend online or join in person at Burleigh Court in Loughborough.

The Laser Safety Forum was founded in 1996 to provide a means of bringing former laser safety course participants back together so that they could share their experiences, receive an update on topical laser safety issues and to provide a further level of post-course support.
