Photocopying machines are very helpful to have around in the office. However, though it may come in handy, it poses certain threats to our health. These machines make use of ink toners and emit fumes every time it operates. Moreover, black carbon is accumulated every time it finishes copying a document. Standing near a photocopying machine while the same is in operation is a big no-no as we expose our bodies to certain health risks. Being in close proximity with a photocopying machines gives us the great probability that we inhale these toxic fumes emitted. These fumes, when inhaled, can cause dizziness or even headaches, or if not, the deleterious effects would be seen in the long run. It may not be now but it will surely come out later. So the next time we wait for our document to be copied, keep a safe distance so that we do not expose our bodies to these elements.
