I can go with that. It's actually anecdotal. They are both lethal machinery. It could perhaps be based on the same legal premise with the legal age for obtaining a driver's license. Sound judgement and making informed decisions are involved (never operate machinery while under the influence). But because lasers are largely in a grey area in terms of jurisdiction, somehow it doesn't get covered for liability like golfing insurance. That's when the law and authorities have begun to interfere. :twak:
It's not just about knowing the rules, any one can learn and know the rules. But what about others that have no idea about what lasers can do. Some one who has no idea could easily walk into a beam or even purposely jump in front of it and look back towards the source. (A bit like jumping in front of a camera pulling a face.) it's not just about You knowing what to do it is also about having some understanding about what Others May Do!
