So when it comes to lighting Lasers can really give your light show that “WOW Factor” But there are some safety aspects that should be considered when using lasers i.e;
What is the best practice for mounting lasers?
What is that key for on the back of some lasers?
What are the legal regulations?
In the UK the Health & Safety Executive provide the following guideline and advice
The radiation safety of lasers used for display purposes – HSG95
Mobile DJs should pay attention to Page 10 clause 33 which states;
“Supervised installations should be designed so that hazardous emissions are not accessible at any point less than 3 m above and 2.5 m laterally from any location at which a member of the audience or public may gain access during a display (see Figures 4 and 5). For unsupervised installations, it is good practice to increase the vertical separation distance to 6 m.”
In the USA refer to the Code of Federal Regulations – 1040.10 and 1040.11
