Board of Laser Safety to Announce Illumination Award Recipient at 2019 International Laser Safety Conference

ORLANDO, Fla. (PRWEB) December 28, 2018

The Board of Laser Safety (BLS) is proud to be participating in LIA’s International Laser Safety Conference International Laser Safety Conference (ILSC) as a cooperating society.

The BLS will host a reception at ILSC to recognize its certified Laser Safety Officers, medical (CMLSO) and non-medical (CLSO), and to present BLS Illumination Award. The recipient of the award will be announced at the reception, held on Monday, 18 March 2019. The first BLS Illumination Award was presented to Mount Sinai Health System in 2017 in recognition of its support of laser safety through employee participation within the laser safety community and outstanding contributions to the field of laser safety.

Continuing a tradition begun at ILSC 2017, BLS will honor its CLSOs and CMLSOs who have been certified for 10 years or more by recognizing them with a commemorative lapel pin.

BLS will be holding CLSO and CMLSO exams the day before the start of ILSC on March 17th, 2019 for approved applicants who have submitted all application materials on or before March 1st, 2019.

According to Barbara Sams, Executive Director of BLS, “The ILSC venue provides an excellent opportunity for those eligible to take their CLSO or CMLSO exam, and then further their laser safety education at the conference. Of particular interest should be the Medical and Technical Practical Applications Seminars, MPAS and TPAS respectively, both of which are once again chaired by BLS certified laser safety officers.”
