Abstract
Applications of lasers are growing in a number of areas; some applications are relatively widespread with developed industrial laser processes while others are considered purely research and development applications with little industrial use at the present time. In this brief writeup an attempt will be made to examine present and future areas of laser use and assess how they may impact on occupational safety and health in either a positive or negative way.
