The College of Engineering works closely with the UW-Madison Office of Radiation Safety to ensure high powered lasers are used safely. If open beam Class 3B and/or Class 4 Lasers/Laser Systems will be used, they must be registered with the Office of Radiation Safety.
Baseline Eye Exams
It is UW-Madison Policy that a baseline eye exam must be completed for any student or employee before use of open beam Class 3B and/or Class 4 Lasers/Laser Systems. University Health Services (UHS) at UW-Madison provides baseline eye examinations. UHS is located at 333 East Campus Mall.
