Sick buildings are those which expose their occupants to health dangers which arise purely from the buildings themselves. The multifarious illnesses which derive from a variety of sources are examined in minute detail and Sick Building Syndrome (SBS) itself is thoroughly dissected, the reasons for its present incidence, the scale of its effects, and its causes (climatic, chemical, ergonomic, psychological and managerial). It is concluded that organisations bear the greatest responsibility for protecting their members from building‐related hazards.
