Pollutant exposures and health symptoms in aircrew and office workers: Is there a link?
Sensory effects in eyes and airways are common symptoms reported by aircraft crew and office workers. Neurological symptoms, such as headache, have also been reported. To assess the commonality and differences in exposures and health symptoms, a literature search of aircraft cabin and office air concentrations of non-reactive volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and ozone-initiated terpene reaction products were compiled and assessed. Data for tricresyl phosphates, in particular tri-ortho-cresyl phosphate (ToCP), were also compiled, as well as information on other risk factors such as low relative...
Mise au point sur les risques toxiques lors de l’utilisation professionnelle des photocopieurs
Les photocopieurs sont considérés comme des outils essentiels dans les entreprises. De plus en plus de salariés se plaignent auprès de leur service de santé au travail de symptômes qu'ils attribuent à leur exposition au photocopieur. Il s'agit donc de connaître les risques liés à cette exposition. Le fonctionnement d'un photocopieur est basé sur l'électrophotographie, c'est-à-dire le transfert électrostatique de la poudre de toner vers une surface photoconductrice chargée électriquement...
Température estivale, concentrations d’ozone et lésions professionnelles acceptées au Québec
Les changements climatiques sont indéniables et leurs impacts sur la santé de la population préoccupent de plus en plus les scientifiques et les décideurs publics. Les spécialistes prévoient des hausses de température au Québec et que les durées et l’intensité des périodes de chaleur accablante et de canicules augmenteront. D’autres paramètres environnementaux seront possiblement modifiés à la suite de l’augmentation de la température extérieure, comme la hausse des...
Ozone-initiated Terpene Reaction Products in Five European Offices
Replacement of a Floor Cleaning Agent Cleaning agents often emit terpenes that react rapidly with ozone. These ozone-initiated reactions, which occur in the gas-phase and on surfaces, produce a host of gaseous and particulate oxygenated compounds with possible adverse health effects in the eyes and airways. Within the European Union (EU) project OFFICAIR, common ozone-initiated reaction products were measured before and after the replacement of the regular floor cleaning agent with a preselected low emitting floor cleaning agent in four offices located in four EU countries. One reference office...
Ozone
Health hazards and control measures This guidance is primarily aimed at employers and managers of people exposed to ozone in the course of their work. Other groups, such as employees and health and safety professionals, will also find the guidance useful. It draws attention to the potential ill health which exposure to ozone can cause and indicates potential sources of ozone at work as well as offering advice on the precautions you may need to take to prevent or control exposure.
