In IL, laser requirements are regulated through IEMA (Illinois Emergency Management Agency). To be in compliance with state mandates, facilities utilizing lasers must implement a laser safety program. IEMA also requires an annual review of laser safety. To view the specific and detailed requirements, please visit the website.

ABOUT BEING THE LASER SAFETY OFFICER (LSO)
As noted in the IL Adm Code document, part 315, the LSO is:
"any individual, qualified by training and experience in the evaluation and control of laser hazards, who is designated by the registrant to have the authority and responsibility to establish and administer the laser radiation protection program for a particular laser installation."
The general qualifications, duties and responsibilities are outlined in section 315.90.
This document does not have specific time or hours of training or education.
To become a certified medical laser safety officer (CMLSO), one must take the CMLSO exam. We do not offer this exam. Information is given during the program regarding the requisite steps to be able to sit for this exam.
