Resumo: Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is recognized by the World Health Organization as a group of symptoms that have no clear etiology and are attributable to exposure to building variables (indoor air quality, lighting, noise, psychological effects). SBS symptoms may occur singly or in combination with each other increasing in severity over the working shift and resolving rapidly when leaving the building in the evening, improving over the weekend and usually disappearing on holiday. The symptoms of SBS include eye, nose, and throat irritation; sensation of dry mucous membranes; dry, itching, and red skin; headaches and mental fatigue; nausea and dizziness.
