Possibly: There are many things in the air that can irritate or cause allergy in the lungs. There could be cleaning products at the workplace or there may be food items that you react to. If your breathing is consistently better when you are away from work then it's more likely to be an exposure at work. Try asking your company's safety officer to look into what may be the cause.
