Laserschutzkurs der DGL
Redaktion
Hinsichtlich der Anforderungen, die an die Ausbildungsseminare zum Laserschutzbeauftragten, oder kurz „Laserschutzkurs“, gestellt werden, ist festzustellen, dass diese sich in den letzten Jahren deutlich verschärft haben. Achten Sie als Interessent, der seine Sachkunde auffrischen möchte, darauf, dass die Anforderungen nach der aktuell gültigen OStrV erfüllt sind. Hier wird explizit gefordert, dass die Kurse eine Mindestdauer nicht unterschreiten – und dies gilt auch für bereits fachlich einschränkende Kurse, z. B. für das Gebiet der Zahnheilkunde. An allgemein gültige Kurse, mit denen auch Laserschutzbeauftragte in allen Anwendungen befähigt werden sollen, werden noch höhere Anforderungen gestellt. Als Zahnmediziner genügt für Sie natürlich der auf die Zahnheilkunde abgestellte Kurs!
