PEROSH paper on guidelines to measure sedentary work awarded
A group of researchers from the European researcher network PEROSH - our Healthy Workplaces Campaign partner - have been awarded for developing common guidelines to measure sedentary work consistently and to prevent health injuries. The scientific paper, which is mainly addressed at practitioners and researchers, has recently been published.
More and more employees perform sedentary work for longer periods of time, which can have harmful health effects, including type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases. In order to overcome them it is necessary to establish common guidelines to obtain precise information to compare data across industries and countries.
