    1. The laser hazard symbol in accordance with AS/NZS 2211.1
    2. The wavelength(s) in nanometres of laser in use
    3. The classification of the laser
    4. What the appropriate eye protection is for the wavelength in use and
    5. Have a notation of ‘invisible laser radiation’ and/or ‘visible laser radiation’ as appropriate
