It also contains recommended procedures for training and response to fire emergencies involving lasers.

Chapters in comprehensive NFPA 115 address every aspect of safety around lasers, including:

  • Classification of lasers
  • Evaluation of laser beam ignition potential
  • Laser beam ignition
  • Fire safety requirements for laser equipment
  • Flammable gases
  • Reactive gases
  • Ignitable liquids used in laser systems
  • Operations and administration
  • Emergency preparedness

Keep facilities and operations up-to-code with the 2016 edition.

Laser manufacturers and designers, facility safety directors, equipment owners, and AHJs all need to stay current with NFPA 115. This 2016 edition includes an updated list in the Performance Monitoring section on the degradation of components that could lead to a fire. Annexes provide explanatory material and information on the nature of hazards, education and training, flash point, and more. (Softbound, 21 pp., 2016)
