Physical activity

Experiencing physical challenges at work? We suggest exploring the DSE guidance and completing a Workplace Risk Assessment with your manager. Occupational Health may be able to provide advice and guidance including suggesting reasonable adjustments following a management referral. If you are experiencing musculoskeletal (MSK) issues do explore this short online training session

Physical activity can have a hugely positive impact on our mental health, such as improved sleep, lower stress and anxiety levels, more connection, better self-esteem and a reduction in low mood and depression.
