Adding just 10-minutes of physical activity several times a day is often the first step to building an active lifestyle. You can help staff meet the minimum recommendation of being active 30 minutes a day, most days of the week, as well as build a wellness culture, by promoting stair use in your building.
Print and post these 8½ x 11 stair signs in your building to promote taking the stairs. These are PDFs and come in a pair for both right and left arrows, so you can post it in the correct direction as needed. Print on high quality paper and laminate, if possible.
