Laser Cutters

It has been brought to our attention that there are a number of pieces of laser cutting and engraving equipment available online that do not comply with national guidance and/or regulations.

In these machines the laser is not enclosed creating an increased risk of burning or eye damage.

CLEAPSS Model Risk Assessment 1.032 Laser Cutters states that the laser beam should be totally enclosed and an interlock provided to prevent operation unless the laser is enclosed. This is necessary to make the system into a Class 1 device, which is then suitable for use in schools.

If you have purchased a machine where the laser is not enclosed you should stop using it immediately.

For further advice and guidance please contact CLEAPSS.
