Sick building syndrome (SBS) describes a range of symptoms thought to be linked to spending time in a certain building, most often a workplace, but no specific cause can be found.

The symptoms of SBS may include:

  • Headaches and dizziness

  • Nausea (feeling sick)

  • Aches and pains

  • Fatigue (extreme tiredness)

  • Poor concentration

  • Shortness of breath or chest tightness

  • Eye and throat irritation

  • Irritated, blocked or runny nose

  • Skin irritation (skin rashes, dry itchy skin)

The symptoms of SBS can occur on their own or in combination with each other, and they may vary from day to day. Different individuals in the same building may experience different symptoms. They usually improve or disappear altogether when you leave the building and often return when you re-enter the building.

Who's affected by SBS?

Anyone can be affected by SBS, but office workers in modern buildings without opening windows and with mechanical ventilation or air conditioning systems are most at risk. The likelihood of experiencing SBS symptoms can be higher if you're employed in routine work that involves using display screen equipment. If you or your employees use computer equipment at work, you should ensure that both the equipment and work area are set up correctly and are in line with the Health and Safety Regulations. Women are more likely to develop the symptoms of SBS than men. This may be because more women work in offices, rather than women being more susceptible to the condition.

SBS environments:

SBS seems to be associated with certain types of buildings. Most cases occur in open plan offices, but people sometimes develop the symptoms while in other buildings that are occupied by lots of people such as:

  • Schools
  • Libraries
  • Museums

There have also been anecdotal reports of people experiencing symptoms such as headaches, tiredness and dizziness at home. Although these symptoms aren't necessarily related to SBS, it's important to ensure your home is a safe environment. Make sure you have working smoke alarms fitted and that gas appliances, such as cookers and boilers, are regularly serviced.Make sure you can open the windows to allow you to ventilate your home, and keep your home as dust-free as possible. Keeping the rooms free of clutter and in good decorative order will also help make your home a pleasant environment in which to live.

Risk factors:

Researchers have tried to identify the cause of SBS. As yet, no single cause has been identified. Most experts believe that it may be the result of a combination of things. Possible risk factors for SBS may include:

  • Poor ventilation

  • Low humidity

  • High temperature or changes in temperature throughout the day

  • Airborne particles, such as dust, carpet fibres or fungal spores

  • Airborne chemical pollutants, such as those from cleaning materials or furniture, or ozone produced by photocopiers and printers

  • Physical factors, such as electrostatic charges

  • Poor standards of cleanliness in the working environment

  • Inadequate ventilation when using chemical cleaning products

  • Poor lighting that causes glare or flicker on visual display units

  • Improper use of display screen equipment

  • Psychological factors, such as stress or low staff morale
