National workplace safety agency Comcare has released its sedentary work practices toolkit, a collection of information, guidance materials and templates that can help workplaces develop and apply a strategy to reduce prolonged sitting in the workplace.


Comcare has warned that prolonged sitting poses significant risks to the health of workers and the organisations they work for, including chronic disease and early death for workers and loss of productivity for organisations.
