Our Sustainability Data & Reporting Manager Sarah Jolliffe is pioneering the use of standing work stations at BAM Nuttall.
With recent media attention on the health effects of employees being stationary when sitting at their desks for many hours in a day.
Sarah took the initiative to raise her own working desk with old wooden blocks to enable her to stand rather than sit.
There are many health benefits surrounding this including, lowering blood sugar and the risk of heart disease.
Many people who sit at desks for long periods of time can suffer with back pain, however, heightening the workstation can reduce this.
Other benefits include the promotion of weight loss and an improvement in workers moods and their energy levels.
Anyone interested in a standing workstation should speak with their line manager.
