Board of Laser Safety (BLS) Announces Launch of New Website

The Board of Laser Safety (BLS) is excited to announce the launch of its new website at

The new website provides a user-friendly platform for both medical and non-medical laser safety officers to stay up-to-date with the latest laser safety and certification news. This reflects the mission of the BLS, which is to “provide a means for improvement in the practice of laser safety by providing opportunities for the education, assessment, and recognition of laser safety professionals.”

The new website offers many convenient features, including:

  • Easy-to-read news feed that allows for timely releases of critical laser safety information.
  • Powerful cloud-based server that ensures speed and deliverability to all visitors.
  • Intuitive, responsive design that is easily navigable on all devices.

The new BLS website will continue to provide information on two types of certification – Certified Laser Safety Officer (CLSO) and Certified Medical Laser Safety Officer (CMLSO). Gaining BLS certification will enhance the credibility of a designated laser safety officer; it shows that the individual has the required knowledge, skills and abilities to perform the job of LSO. It demonstrates the individual’s commitment to the job as well as validate an employer’s commitment to a safe working environment. For more information on BLS certifications, please visit

The Laser Institute of America (LIA) supports the BLS’ mission by offering laser safety training for both LSOs and MLSOs. As the professional society for laser applications and safety, LIA is dedicated to serving the industrial, medical, research and government communities worldwide.
