Obtaining Laser Safety Training is NOT the same as obtaining a Laser Safety Permit.
Each individual who directs the use of laser equipment is required to obtain an internal Laser Safety Permit. In addition to the conditions of the permit, the permit holder must follow requirements set by various agencies including Health Canada (Radiation Emitting Devices Act) and Ontario Ministry of Labour. If you follow the Ryerson Laser Safety Manual, you will be in compliance with all requirements. If you are such an individual, contact the LSO.
