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.

This poster is printed double-sided, with English on one side and French on the other.

This poster is offered as a free download for individual copy use only. Reproduction is not permitted. Prints are available for purchase if you wish to distribute multiple copies.
