Is your copier putting employee health at risk?

An important consideration for any Fort Worth business

Have you heard of VOCs? If not, then you probably have no idea that many copiers produce them. VOCs or volatile organic compounds can be a danger to health. Ozone, is the one that a lot of copiers produce. Here are the effects as stated by Web MD.

  • Lung irritation and inflammation
  • Coughing, wheezing, and pain when a deep breath is taken
  • Permanent lung damage with repeated exposure
  • Aggravation of asthma, higher chances of pneumonia and bronchitus, and decreased lung capacity

Now that you know the dangers, you need to find out if your copier is an ozone producing model. Ask “How much does the corona wire on this copier cost?” to find out. If it’s included than you have an ozone producer on your hands. One thing that you can do to keep safe is to position the copier away from desks so that people aren’t breathing in that ozone all day.
