Active Working® incorporates simple 'behavioural
' steps to get people standing and moving more often during their working day. The target is to reduce regular office sitting time by a minimum of 2 hours a day
by a series of regular activity interruptions which include standing at your desk, standing in meetings, walking meetings and ad hoc movement activities.
In January 2015 Public Health England
and Active Working C.I.C
jointly commissioned an Expert Statement
on the status and impact of prolonged sitting in the office FREE Download
A number of core recommendations were published..
Accumulate 2 hours daily of standing and light activity (light walking) during working hours
Break up seated based work with standing based work regularly. This is easily achieved with the use of adjustable sit-stand desks/work stations
Avoid prolonged periods of static sitting (and standing)
Employers should promote reduction of sitting down either at work or at home alongside other health goals
