Don't expect a quick fix when employees report health problems that have no clear connection to the workplace. But you can expect to hear more about these problems. These reports originally seemed to come mostly from occupants in new office buildings; they have now expanded to include any employee at any work location. New processes and new job activities appear to initiate or stimulate the condition.
Malaise, headaches, fatigue, dizziness, irritability, chest pain, forgetfulness, and heightened annoyance to certain odors are the health complaints most often cited. Complaints have been noted to arise more among young women than men or older women.
