Safety rules for laser lights

The laser light/laser radiation used in the GMC REDEYE
system is Class 2 with maximum 1mW power and 650nm

wavelengths. These lasers do not normally present an

optical hazard, although staring at the beam may cause

flash blindness.

Do not stare directly at the laser beam.
A hazard may exist if you deliberately stare into the beam,

please observe all safety rules as follows;

The laser shall be used and maintained in accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions.

Never aim the beam at any person or an object other
than the work piece.

The laser beam shall not be deliberately aimed at
personnel and shall be prevented from being directed

towards the eye of a person for longer than 0.25s.

Always ensure the laser beam is aimed at a sturdy
work piece without reflective surfaces. i.e. wood or rough

coated surfaces are acceptable. Bright shiny reflective

sheet steel or the like is not suitable for laser use as

the reflective surface could direct the beam back at the


Do not change the laser light assembly with a different
type. Repairs must only be carried out by the laser

manufacturer or an authorised agent.

Use of controls or adjustments or performance
of procedures other than those specified herein may result

in hazardous radiation exposure.

Please refer to the relevant Australian standards, AS 2397

and AS/NZS2211 for more information on Lasers.
