Human Spaces contributor Oliver Heath explains 'Sick Building Syndrome'.
Sick Building Syndrome affects the wellbeing of those who spend time within it. The symptomatic effects are a sore throat, irritated nose/sinus, combined mucous membrane symptoms, tight chest and or wheezing. Not only is this significant for the well-being and therefore satisfaction of the occupants of the buildings, but it can also affect their decision-making skills, productivity and increase absenteeism.
Heath goes on to describe the different factors that contribute to the problem.
