What can I do if I need to stand or sit continuously for long hours while working?

You should avoid standing or sitting continuously for long hours while working.

Prolonged standing or sitting may cause discomfort and fatigue, and would not be good for your posture and health.

If you need to work in such conditions, please read the guidelines on working in standing or sitting positions.

Employers are encouraged to improve workplace ergonomics to help you. Read the guidelines on improving ergonomics in the workplace.
