Move More at Work
Aimed at staff with desk-based roles, this short (25 minute) e-learning course deals with a serious subject in an engaging and positive way. It provides users with clear information about the serious health risks associated with inactivity generally, and in particular sedentary behaviour - sitting or lying down for long periods while awake.
Staff are encouraged to consider their own sitting habits at work, and also application of the course content to life outside of the office. Besides sit/stand furniture, a wide range of other free and low-cost ways of breaking up long periods of sitting and introducing more movement into a working day are presented.

In approving the course, assessors from the Professional Affairs Board of the CIEHF commented:
“An excellent and comprehensive e-learning course developed by an experienced team. The material is visually engaging with practical ideas/examples given for the workplace which are importantly guided by relevant Regulations. The style of learning and access to online materials will suit the work environment. The developers should be congratulated on designing an accessible vocational course on an increasingly important topic."
