Our expert says:
I'm sorry that you have to endure this - it's really unacceptable. It's correct, however, that you do need to come into physical contact with the sewerage for it to pose a health threat. Unless you actually touch it (and that would include getting any leaked material on your shoes and tracking that back into your home), or it somehow gets into the drinking water system (most unlikely; this system is separate), you will be safe.
However having to endure the smell is not just a minor nuisance - it impacts on your quality of life and the building management needs to correct the problem at once.
