Sick building syndrome (SBS)
- SBS is a term used to
describe a building in which the occupants experience a
range of symptoms causing discomfort and a sense of being
unwell, rather than specific illnesses. These buildings are
typically modern offices which have mechanical ventilation
or air conditioning. It is a complex problem and much of the
evidence for it is inconclusive and circumstantial. Both
physical and psychological causes have been suggested.
The range of symptoms may
eye, nose and throat
irritation, sensitisation of mucus
membranes and skin, skin rash, headaches, high frequency of
infection and coughs, hoarseness, wheezing, itching, and unspecified
hypersensitivity, nausea and dizziness.
