This Special Issue will focus on occupational physical activity, viewed as an integrated part of the activity pattern of the whole day, including leisure and sleep time.
Daily physical activity is important for reducing health risks and maintaining good health, but research integrating physical activity at work into an ‘around-the-clock’ perspective including leisure and sleep is sparse. This leaves both organizations and workers with limited guidance on how to form health-promoting jobs adapted both to the organizational context and to the personal traits of the worker, such as age, gender, and socioeconomic status. This Special Issue collects studies addressing physical activity and inactivity at work in the context of how it contributes to occupational health from a ‘holistic’ 24/7 perspective.
Thus, we welcome high-quality papers on exposures to and health effects of physical activity at work from a 24/7 perspective. In particular, we would appreciate studies addressing compositions of time spent in various activities at and outside work and other studies that can contribute to a better understanding of health beyond the effects of single behaviors in only one domain.
