The term Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) is used to describe situations in which building occupants experience acute health and comfort effects that appear to be linked to time spent in a building, but no specific illness or cause can be identified. In 1984, world health organization (WHO) indicated that up to 30% of new and remodeled buildings worldwide may be linked to symptoms of SBS. SBS has variety of causes but HVAC system has the most influence on SBS, furthermore, air contaminants, mold and lighting system can cause SBS symptoms among office workers.
