PUTRAJAYA: If the building you work in is "sick", there is a likelihood that you too could fall ill.

And you could also fall ill even if you are a long distance away from it.

This is called the Sick Building Syndrome, where the building-related illnesses can be caused by chemical and biological agents in the buildings.

Exposure to them can cause pneumonitis, occupational asthma, tuberculosis and hypersensitivity.

Public Works Department health branch director Datuk Puteh Kamariah Mohamad said individuals could also contract multiple chemical sensitivity or environmental illnesses where they could develop sensitivity to even low levels of certain chemicals, due to extended exposure.
