Abstract

This paper describes a risk assessment methodology for laser applications in medicine that takes account of the different stages of the life cycle of the laser application, the individual components of the laser application and the different people at risk. In this way, the specific hazards can be identified and addressed to ensure that the risks associated with the use of lasers in medicine are adequately managed.
