V. Warning Labels and Signs

ANSI Z136.1 requires that lasers and laser systems have appropriate warning labels and that the areas in which they operate be posted with appropriate warning signs.

The figures below are examples of laser warning signs:

All lasers (except Class 1) shall have appropriate warning labels affixed to a conspicuous place on the laser housing or control panel. Laser area warning signs and equipment labels are available from EHS or a number of safety supply companies, including the Laser Institute of America.
