More than half of an average person's day is spent being sedentary. For a growing number of Canadian workers, that includes many hours spent sitting on the job. Over time, these long periods of inactivity can be hazardous to their health, from neck and lower body strains, fatigue and injury to digestive, mobility, heart and lung issues.

Share these informative handouts with practical tips to help workers reduce the effects of prolonged sitting - from taking a good sitting position to making physical activity and stretch breaks part of how work is done every day.

These 5-page accordion-fold handouts are printed double-sided, with English on one side and French on the other. Note that a minimum order of 10 handouts is required.
