||Volatile organic compounds, respirable dust, and personal factors related to prevalence and incidence of sick building syndrome in primary schools.
||Nov. 1990, Vol.47, No.11, p.733-741. Illus. 31 ref.
||The relationship between sick building syndrome (SBS), indoor exposures, and personal factors was studied in a 4yr longitudinal study among personnel (n=129) in 6 schools. A relationship existed between SBS on the one hand, and a variety of workplace factors, such as concentration of dust and volatile hydrocarbons in the air, the presence of wall-to-wall carpeting, smoking and hyperreactivity, on the other.
