Resumen The ozone emission from 69 different units was determined by a described standard procedure. The emission rates ranged from 0 to 1350µg/min. The maximum ozone concentration in the breathing zone of 19 workers ranged from 0.001 to 0.15ppm. Technical conditions for the amount of ozone generated are described and the efficiencies of activated carbon filters are evaluated. Concentrations for selenium and cadmium were less than the limit of detection, 0.004 and 0.6µg/m3, respectively. Dust concentrations (toner) in the air exhausted from photocopiers ranged from 0.05 to 0.5mg/m3. Vapours from the resins in the toner were detected but the health hazards from these vapours and the possible products from reaction with ozone are unknown and require further research.
