The new laser safety officer is Dr Alex Colburn, situated in E011c. Dr Colburn can be reached on 024761 23192. However I list below some information related to my term as laser safety officer.

Please refer to the laser safety document regarding the necessary guidelines of laser-safe practise.

All research groups using lasers in the Chemistry Department at Warwick should read this document and must fill in the necessary parts before commencing work with lasers. A completed copy of this document should be kept in your laboratory for reference. A laser safety DVD forms part of the laser safety training. A copy of this DVD can be obtained from me.
