    Photocopiers

    I'm sure i've read somewhere that if there's a photocopier in a room then the room has to be a minimum size and well ventilated but i can't find the thing i was reading, anyone by any chance seen it on the net? There's general advice on it i.e place in a well ventilated area but can't find specifics

    Need some firm evidence that it needs moving out of my office.

    Cheers

    cheers, they're all still quite vague and say "well ventilated" and "large room" the article i was reading said specifics like for a photocopier x large the room needs to be AxBxC dimensions.

    maybe i imagined it!

    Here's a unison one:

    still no specifics but it was the only other one I could find mention of in the forum. There arn't any actual hard laws on it as far as I can see and so the hazzard level is not been quantified, any hard figures are likely to be circumstantial at best.

    This is quite likely - when I was younger I worked in an office with a big old bubblejet printer going almost all the time. I developed asthma and the doctors said that if you are exposed to something like printing ink and develop a reaction to it, after about a year you will continue with the reaction (in my case asthma) even after the cause has been removed.
