Laser Safety

Welcome to the Middlebury Sciences Laser Safety page! This page is a resource for anyone working with lasers in Bicentennial Hall.

Middlebury faculty, staff, student workers, and student researchers who will be working or supervising work with lasers should complete the on-line Laser Safety training module.  This training does not replace laser specific training in individual laboriatories; but rather provides general information related to lasers and their use.

While this page is still a work in progress, we'd like to recommend a few useful links below. Be sure to check back regularly to see what changes we've made to the page.
