dangers of sitting next to the printer

Pay attention to where you are sitting in the office at this time, if it is near the printing machine or printer that is often used, you should be wary. Beware the risk of respiratory diseases lurk.
Although this case study is arguably still early, the researchers have shown that laser printing or laser printing creates a 'rain' of small particles, that are settled in the air and can be inhaled deep into the lungs. There is evidence to suggest that small particles of this kind for a long time can damage the liver and lungs.
Experts from the International Laboratory for Air Quality and Health, Queensland University of Technology, Professor Lidia Morawska, began his studies in 2007 related to rain particles caused by the printing press.
"We found that some printers in our office space is a small transmitter that heavy particles. So we recommend these machines should be moved to a corridor where there is good ventilation".
As its name implies: ultrafine particles, these particles are so small that less than 0.1 micrometers in diameter. Aside from printing machines, other sources of ultrafine particles include vehicle exhaust, wood combustion, as well as the rest of the cooking process.
Prof Morawska found that the particle emission process came when the printer toner and paper over the top of the roller printer heat. The chemicals known as volatile organic compounds and, starting released into the air. "These compounds then react with ozone in the air and condense to form ultrafine particles. Temperature printer is the main thing. More heat, the more particles are reproduced," explained Prof. Morawska.
In addition, the research team of Professor Morawska also showed that differences in engine models from the same manufacturer can produce very different levels of particles anyway. So what can we do?
"Make sure the office well ventilated space, meaning that there is an exchange with the outside air. If possible, place the printer in a well ventilated area and away from the people," Professor Morawska said.
Also, avoid standing near the printer while printing process. People with asthma or heart disease would be better advised not to sit near the printer.

This study makes it imperative for Office structures to be modified so that nobody is constantly close to the printer.
