Important Notice: Closure of Pro Laser /Pro Laser Consultants

Pro Laser was founded in 1991 by Dr Mike Green. Amongst our many activities have been the running the UK part of the EU Eureka project 643 ‘Safety in the Industrial Applications of Lasers’ (1992 – 96) and providing full secretarial services for the Association of Industrial Laser Users (1995 – 2015). Pro Laser has also always provided laser safety consultancy and this activity was greatly strengthened when Mike Barrett joined Pro Laser in 2001, bringing with him 22 years of experience in the laser industry, including active membership on the National (BSI) and International (IEC and ISO) laser safety standards’ bodies. Together, ‘the two Mikes’ helped to establish the Association of Laser Safety Professionals (2004 – present) and Pro Laser took on an increasingly strong position in the UK as an independent laser safety consultancy providing unique bespoke in-house training and documentation services.

We, Mike Green and Mike Barrett, have now jointly decided that the time has come to retire from laser safety activities in order to pursue other interests whilst we are still active and in good health. As a consequence, Pro Laser will complete its current obligations and will only take on new work if completion can be reasonably assured on or before 31 December 2016, at which time Pro Laser Ltd and Pro Laser Consultants will cease trading. After a full working lifetime of engagement with the laser community we would like to sincerely thank our many academic and industrial clients for their friendship and support over the years.
