Is it safe to use a photocopier for more than a few minutes when I'm pregnant?

Yes, it’s safe to use a photocopier while you are pregnant.

The use of photocopiers has been studied, and there aren't any risks to pregnant women or others from using photocopiers. There’s no known risk from the toner or other chemicals used in the copier, nor is there any type of known electromagnetic emission risk.

It's not hazardous for pregnant women to be around a photocopier.
