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 include:

  • 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
