Poor air quality can affect the health, wellness, performance, and productivity of your employees. If you don't pay attention to the indoor air quality at your offices, your employees could be affected by a phenomenon known as Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). What’s Sick Building Syndrome? Well, the term SBS is universally used to describe cases where multiple occupants of a building experience serious health issues or considerable discomfort, which seem to be related to the time they spent in that particular building. In cases of SBS, a specific illness or causal agent can’t be identified (If specific illnesses can be identified, the term Building Related Illness (BRI) is used instead).
Biological contaminants are likely to flourish in offices with poor lighting, and high humidity. How are buildings investigated for air quality contaminants? To stop SBS, you need to bring in Environmental Consultants who can assess your building’s indoor air quality as soon as the occupants start reporting any of the symptoms we’ve mentioned
