Lunch 'n' Learn: BeUpstanding - Stand Up, Sit Less, Move More

Healthier Workplace WA

Event outline

With over 10 years of research, the evidence is clear. Long periods of sitting have serious health consequences. The good news - adults who sit less throughout the day have a lower risk of illness and early death, particularly from heart disease. So how do we effectively get workers to Stand Up, Sit Less and Move More? Well, the FREE BeUpstanding Toolkit is an evidence based workplace initiative for getting Aussie workers to do just that.

Healthier Workplace WA invite you to their Lunch 'n' Learn to hear about the risks of sitting for too long and how to combat sedentary behaviour in the workplace, including the use of this tool. The session will be delivered by Professor Leon Straker, an ergonomist from Curtin University and a contributing researcher to the BeUpstanding Toolkit.
