Abstract

Chemical Intolerance (CI) is a growing concern worldwide (Ashford et al., 1995). People with CI attribute multi-system symptoms to a wide variety of low-level chemical exposures. Building investigators need to be aware of this susceptible group, who serve as sentinels for indoor air quality problems. Despite assurances of safety after investigations or remediation, CI occupants may report continuing symptoms. Offering the Quick Environmental Exposure and Sensitivity Inventory (QEESI
