Although sitting requires less physical effort than standing or walking, it puts stress on the lumbar area. Over time, the effects of a sedentary lifestyle combined with a job that requires sitting can lead to various health problems, including musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Learning and practicing how to sit properly can reduce stress and strain on your muscles, tendons, and skeletal system. Display this poster to help guide workers on how to position themselves for safety and comfort, and to thereby reduce the risk of developing MSDs in the workplace.
