This info sheet outlines the current health recommendations and contains simple tips for employers and workers, such as taking frequent microbreaks, walking during phone calls, stretching breaks in meetings and ‘dynamic sitting’ , with specific advice for drivers.
It presents examples of successful workplace programmes and resources for workplace discussions, and links to further information and ideas. By working together, employers and workers can find practical ways to promote more active ways of working. Altogether now — stretch!
