Description

This Move More at Work course delivers a powerful message in a succinct and engaging way. It aims to raise awareness of the health risks associated with physical inactivity and sedentary behaviour.  

Against this context, participants are invited to consider how to improve their own behaviour. A range of free or low-cost methods of introducing more movement in the workplace are presented, helping to safeguard staff health and boost productivity at the same time.

While sit/stand furniture is acknowledged as an effective way of encouraging movement and postural changes, a key objective of the course is to highlight other free and low-cost methods of reducing prolonged periods of sitting.


Course Content

The Move More at Work course  is split into three sections:

Section 1  | Physical Inactivity & Health

Section 2 | Sedentary Behaviour

Section 3 | Increasing Activity and Movement at Work

Why take the Move More at Work course?

The World Health Organisation has identified insufficient physical activity as the fourth leading risk factor for global mortality. 

Sedentary behaviour and physical inactivity are linked to a variety of serious health conditions; including MSDs, stress, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and some forms of cancer.

Prolonged sitting has been described by some commentators as ‘the new smoking’.

Employers are increasingly aware that staff who are engaged and healthy – mentally, physically and emotionally – have fewer absences and are more productive.

One simple way to help achieve this is to encourage desk-based staff to interrupt long periods of sitting with movement and postural changes.
