MEMIC Safety Experts Podcast
Episode #9 | Published January 6, 2020
Do you sit all, or most of the day? Are you more tired, and sore after getting out of your office chair than you are after a workout? MEMIC’s Director of Ergonomics, Allan Brown, introduces listeners to the concept of how non-exercise activity thermogenesis (NEAT) can increase your overall health and improve safety on the job. Brown asks, “When you get to that elevator, do you really have to push that button, or can you walk up?” In this episode, host Pete Koch and Allan Brown explore how basic activities like walking, standing, stretching and even chewing gum can improve workplace ergonomics and employee well-being.
