Abstract

In the construction field, a number of laser devices are in use for tracing, surveying and alignment.
In this paper, some typical yard applications of laser are reviewed, from the point of view of the risk assessor.
Since the risk assessment is often mainly based on data supplied by the manufacturer, an example is shown of a comparison between declared and actual data for a typical laser range meter.
