Office copiers produce something called VOCs. This stands for volatile Organic Compounds, and the biggest one that your copier produces is ozone. Having ozone in the air can be harmful to those who are especially sensitive in their lungs and respiratory system.
Here is what you need to do to make sure your office copier is not affecting the health of those in the office
- Find out if your copier produces VOCs. Find out if your copier has a corona wire of contact your local Denver Copier representative for help figuring out if you have a VOC producing machine.
- Move the printer to a well-ventilated area, away from being directly next to employees.
- Change the ozone filters in your machine regularly to ensure it is working the way it needs to
You may not notice the effects of ozone on your own lungs, but that does not mean that everyone is immune to the affects. Making sure you are doing your part to make your office safe for personal health can be the first step to stopping bronchitis and other respiratory infections.
