UV lasers are being applied to a number of industries, including metrology and manufacture. The safety issues from the use of such lasers are discussed. A risk assessment methodology is described which takes account of the different stages of the life cycle of the laser application, the different people at risk and the individual components of the laser application. In this way, the specific hazards can be identified and addressed to ensure that the risks are adequately managed.
