Office Workers
The term "office workers" is not a specific occupational group in the Standard Occupational Classification System.

Contact dermatitis from phenol formaldehyde maleic anhydride in typewriter correction paper and thiourea in photocopy paper has been reported. Guidelines to prevent sick-building syndrome include maintaining relative humidity at 30-60% and bringing in outside fresh air at 17 cubic feet/minute per occupant.
