Sedentary Roles

Prolonged sitting poses significant risks to the health of workers and to the organisations they work for. Sedentary behaviours involve sitting or reclining, resulting in little or no physical activity energy expenditure. As working Australians spend most of their adult life in the workplace, it is a key setting to measure and implement changes and reducing sedentary behaviour. Many workers spend 76 per cent of their time sitting for approximately six hours per day.
