Consequences of Standing while Working

Standing for periods exceeding two hours, may cause health problems in short to medium term such as:

  • Pain on feet and legs
  • Swelling in the feet and ankles.
  • Varicose veins and circulatory problems.
  • The muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints become stiff and stiffness leads to different conditions, including arthritis and possible muscle injury.
  • Back pain and neck problems.
  • Severe knee soreness or pain.

To reduce the above mentioned conditions it is advisable to change positions and taking breaks every half hour from 5 to 10 minutes either walking or sitting, have a qualified workstation for the workers, where he/she can adopt a balanced position without unnecessary strain of the body and the use of comfortable shoes that do not change the shape of the foot in standing position.
