The Laser Institute of America (LIA) has awarded its 2017 George M. Wilkening Award to Wesley J. Marshall, principal of Laser Safety Specialties, for his contributions to laser safety.

The George M. Wilkening Award is presented to individuals who have made extensive contributions to laser safety in science, medicine, industry or education. Established in 1997, the award is named after George M. Wilkening, the first ANSI Z136 Standards Committee chairman. LIA is recognizing Marshall for his 40-year involvement with military laser safety, as well as his vast educational contributions in working with numerous institutions to increase laser safety knowledge. The award will be bestowed at the annual International Laser Safety Conference in Atlanta.

Marshall has developed laser hazard analysis software, as well as educational courses involving laser safety and hazard awareness. He serves on the Accredited Standards Committee for Safe Use of Lasers Z136 as a chair for Technical Subcommittee 7, and he is also the chair for the SAE G10T Laser Safety Hazards Committee, providing guidance on outdoor laser operations. Previously, Marshall served as the chair of Standard Subcommittee 6, which is responsible for the ANSI Z136.6 Safe Use of Lasers Outdoors.
