Is Leica DISTO™ certified for explosion protected areas?
To be on the safe side of questionable tasks (e.g. mining, tunnelling) the safety engineer should issue a welding permit. During the time the Leica DISTO™ is being used, there must be no danger of explosion. The Leica DISTO™ must not be used, not even for a short time, an explosive mixture may be present in the air. The Ex-Leica DISTO™ memo, which is distributed by

Firma ECOM Instruments

is the only exception.

What precautions should one take when using the Disto laser measuring device?
Precautions:
Do not stare into the laser beam or direct it towards other people unnecessarily. Eye protection is normally afforded by aversion responses including the blink reflex.

Do not look into the laser beam. Make sure the laser is aimed above or below eye level; particularly with fixed installations, in machines, etc.

If you are using a telescopic viewfinder, do not aim at areas that are reflective like a mirror, or which could produce unintended reflections (e.g. mirrors, metallic surfaces, windows, prisms).

Do not look directly into the beam with optical aids.

Do not point the telescopic viewer directly at the sun.

Always ensure your measurement site is appropriately secured. Obey the local accident prevention regulations and road safety rules at all times.
