Don't be a bunny, prepare for new laser standards and guidelines now

Your laser and IPL safety programs, policies, education, audit and QA activities, and daily operational processes will need to align with new, strict Australia/NZ Standards and ARPANSA guidelines coming later in 2017. What are some things to do to prepare?

New, stricter Australia/NZ Standards and ARPANSA guidelines are on the horizon

For those of you who use either laser or IPL and don’t have as a minimum qualification a recent, accredited laser/IPL safety certificate then it’s time to get one. A time and cost saving option to do this is by undertaking highly flexible online learning.

Now is the time to ensure you have a current laser/IPL safety qualification

If laser safety isn’t built into your orientation program it will need to be and an education plan and supervised practice pathway to clinical capability made evident. Other things to consider implementing sooner rather than later are a machinery maintenance schedule, an annual laser/IPL safety audit process and a policy for managing incidents and adverse outcomes.

Prepare ahead of time and minimise the impact to your clinic and clinical practice
