Sažetak
The study aimed to examine potential relationships between work-related symptoms attributed to sick building syndrome (SBS) and certain psychological, somatic and environmental factors. The multidisciplinary, cross-sectional study comprised 171 female subjects working in air-conditioned and naturally ventilated non-industrial office buildings. Symptoms related to SBS and assessments of quality of life were collected by appropriate questionnaires. The level of emotional stability/neuroticism was assessed by Cornell Index. Skin and airway reactivity markers and indoor microclimate data were determined using standardised methods. Our study has shown a high prevalence of fatigue (60.2%), sore and dry eyes (57.9%), and headache (44.4%), as well as generally high SBS index. Neuroticism and subjectively estimated physical health as well as the type of building ventilation significantly contributed to the prediction of SBS index, explaining 16% of the variance.
