Safety Technology Group

  • Laser and occupational safety

  • Hazard analyses and protective measures

  • Emission prognoses and characterization

The Safety Technology Group carries out investigations on the measurement, evaluation and hazard analysis of laser radiation as well as gas and particle emissions during laser material processing. From laser safety eyewear to laser protective clothing, and from exhaust to filter systems – the safety experts at the LZH provide hazard and workplace analyses and emission prognoses and characterization. Their main goal is to identify and eliminate hazards for workers and quality problems during the process.

The principle regulations concerning this are the TA-Luft (German Clean Air Act), the Ordinance on Hazardous Substances and the Technical Rules for Hazardous Substances (TRGS).
