Sedentary work

Sedentary work refers to jobs that are characterised by minimal movement and low energy expenditure. Sedentary work often requires the worker to sit down for a long period of time.

Social age

Social age reflects cultural and societal expectations of how people should act at a certain age. It is an estimate of a person's capabilities in social situations that are relative to normal standards.

Sustainable work

Sustainable work over the life course means that working and living conditions are such that they support people in engaging and remaining in work throughout an extended working life. These conditions enable a fit between work and the characteristics or circumstances of the individual throughout their changing life, and must be developed through policies and practices at work and outside work.
