Safety recommendations

The coroner's office recommended anyone using a laptop take the following precautions.

  • Always operate on a hard surface that allows ventilation. Soft materials can block the airflow vents and cause it to overheat.
  • If it is not possible to avoid using a soft surface, an optional heat-sink base should be used to maintain cooling.
  • Always shut down your laptop, even for short periods of time, especially when placed in a carry bag.
  • Inspect and clean the air vents on a weekly basis. Forced-air dusters can be used to keep the vents clean and free from debris.
  • Replace any equipment or parts that do not work.
  • Using a laptop desk or cooler to allow air circulation between the laptop and the desk
  • Visit the Health Canada recall listings website to see if a laptop has been recalled.
  • Review the manufacturers' website for additional safety tips and recommended maintenance.
