Description

Poster raising awareness on dynamic sitting position: prolonged sitting Prolonged sitting is an increasing occupational health risk in the workplace. Prolonged sitting is a risk factor for various health problems. However, sitting all day long is s everyday life for many people. Changing the posture and position of the body (dynamic sitting/active sitting) will prevent back pain and other health problems related to prolonged sitting.  

 

Ständiges starres Sitzen ist nicht gesund – das ist bekannt. Doch im Arbeitsalltag lässt es sich oft nicht vermeiden. Wer seine Haltung regelmäßig ändert und ab und an aufsteht, beugt Rückenschmerzen vor. Das Poster der Plakatkampagne der BG ETEM 2020 macht auf dynamisches Sitzen aufmerksam.
