The concept of refresher training in laser safety is not new. Refresher training is brought up in both ANSI Z136.1 Safe Use of Lasers and ANSI Z136.8 the Research Laser Standard & Z136.9, the Industrial Laser Standard. Many institutions perform refresher training, but questions of how often, what to include, how to deliver remain. This presentation will discuss the issues that make up refresher training. The presentation will address what are the options for refresher training, traditional and nontraditional and what are the more effective techniques. Also, the goal of refresher training will be discussed and the documentation challenges in having such a program.
