Abstract
A total of 22 cases of laser injury were confirmed among 15 establishments in a follow-up survey of 200 establishments that use lasers in California, Massachusetts and New Jersey. Eye injuries accounted for 7 cases: field defects but no blindness developed among those with retinal injuries. Nine workers sustained electrical shocks; none died. Skin burns from laser beam impact were noted in four men. Aspects of laser safety, case histories of affected workers, and methods of injury prevention are reviewed.
