'''Don't cut anything particularly flammable or noxious.''' Check the [[Laser_infobase#Things_you_should_not_put_in_the_laser_cutter | Laser Infobase page for this list]]

===Fire===
+
When using the laser, whether for engraving or cutting, stay and watch your job.
+
 
+
Know where the fire extinguisher is and be ready to use it.
+
 
+
If your job catches on fire:
+
*You are more important than the laser--do not put yourself in unnecessary danger to save the laser. (Cf. Bloominglabs rules)
+
*Use your judgment--flare-ups will happen, and most go out quickly (a second or so) on their own.
+
*Any flame lasting longer than a second or two is a fire--put it out.
+
 
+
===Eye safety===
+
Do not look directly into either the cutting laser or even the visible targeting laser.
+
 
+
Make sure the lid is down before you even try starting your job.  There is an integrated safety lock-out, but don't rely on this.
+
 
+
The lid should absorb most laser radiation, but if you're cutting reflective material, it wouldn't hurt to use the tinted safety glasses (should be located near the laser).
