New York’s office building is among the worst places to work in America, according to a study published in The American Journal of Public Health.
The study found that nearly 50 percent of office workers in New England have experienced some form of workplace-related illness.
“It’s really a reflection of the kind of climate in which the office is operating,” said Dr. Robert Gilder, an assistant professor of public health at the University of California, San Francisco.
“It’s very dangerous for workers and it’s very unsafe for people who work there.”
The study was conducted by researchers at the National Center for Occupational Health Statistics and Health Promotion in the US and found that employees of the offices are two to three times more likely to report having been ill than workers in the general population.
In the study, the researchers looked at more than 17,000 employees of a large federal health care system.
They also looked at data from nearly 20,000 workers at a local office building.
They found that workers at the office buildings were 2.9 times more at risk of being ill compared to workers in their general population, the study found.
Dr. Gildar said that the problem can be traced back to the fact that workers are paid to work.
“They’re not paid to be sick, they’re paid to do their job,” he said.
“And if they get sick they’re not going to get paid back.”
The study found workers were more likely than non-working residents to report getting sick at work.
And the researchers said that many of these workers are also employees of companies.
“So the people who are actually in charge of the facilities and who are also paid to provide health services, they’ve also been exposed to the same risks,” Gildering said.
The researchers said the average worker who worked in the office for three months was about twice as likely to have an illness as a non-worker, who was only 2.4 times more.
“It is a very bad situation, and the risk of getting sick from working there is not just a small percentage of workers,” Giffer said.
The average office worker in the study had about five years of health insurance and had a median annual income of $100,000.
The report also found that more than 80 percent of the people at the two largest employers in New Hampshire and New York reported being sick at least once in the previous year.
