Do I Work in a Sick Building?

By    |   Tuesday, 13 May 2014 06:14 PM

Question: I sneeze a lot when I’m in my office and I think it might be sick building syndrome. Is there anything I can do about it? My boss brushed me off when I mentioned it.
Dr. Hibberd's answer:
 
You should leave the building and stay away until the condition is cleared up. See your doctor to be sure your symptoms are not related to a personal medical condition. You should talk with your boss if your symptoms return when you go back into your office.
 
If others have similar symptoms, call the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for an inspection. You can also report this to your building code office inspector and local health department so that gas leaks, faulty ventilation, chimney or carbon monoxide sources are checked, along with lead, asbestos, other environmental hazards.
