We will not update the guideline on physical activity in the workplace.
The majority of new evidence was found to be broadly consistent with the current recommendations. We found some new evidence on the specific components of physical activity programmes which are not currently included in the guideline, however, more evidence on the long-term effects of these are needed before an impact on the guideline can be assessed. Ongoing trials assessing the long-term effectiveness of sit-stand desks are being monitored and will be reviewed for impact on the guideline once the results are published.
For further details and a summary of all evidence identified in surveillance, see appendix A.
