The previous answer was not entirely correct. Just because a laser conforms to US or international standards does not mean its "safe". All lasers have some potential to harm the eyes. Its a matter of distance from the source to the eye and power output so even systems that say "eye safe" can cause eye damage depending on how far away/close you are. I do not know the power output of the laser however you should never look at or into a laser- even those briefing ones that reflect off the presentation screen. Its just a good practice!

No, it conforms to worldwide laser standards of safety.
But still best not to wave it into anyone's eyes on a regular basis as it will still annoy the eye, just the same as waving any bright light straight into someone's eye would.
