Stanford University Laser Safety Manual


Statement declining preplacement laser eye examination

I, _____________________________ have been told of the University policy regarding the
           (NAME PRINTED)
opportunity for personnel who work in areas where Class 3 or 4 lasers are operating to have eye examinations prior to working in the areas. I understand that the eye examination would provide a baseline for comparison in the event of possible injury and that it might reveal evidence of earlier injuries or of eye conditions which might make it more hazardous to work with lasers. Nonetheless, I decline to have the examination.

Note: It is possible that failure to have an exam could prejudice a person's ability to recover damages, if a pre-existing condition that contributed to and injury was determined to exist.
