Abstract Introduction:<\b>
The Stand Up Australia program of research has shown that interventions targeting sitting less and moving more at work are both feasible and highly acceptable to both workers and organisations. The BeUpstandingTM Champion Toolkit initiative is currently live in a “soft launch” phase, prior to the commencement of a national implementation trial in late 2018 and provides employers with the support and resources to translate this research evidence into practice. Key learnings and challenges from this phase will be presented. Methods:<\b>
The free, web-based BeUpstanding toolkit uses a “train the champion” approach to support workplaces to create a dynamic workplace where standing up, sitting less, and moving more is the norm. Workplace champions are provided with an evidence-informed, step-by-step guide with accompanying resources to assist in getting management on board and run and evaluate the intervention within their own work team. The toolkit is promoted and supported by key policy and practice partners, and the priority sectors targeted include: small business, call centre workers, rural/regional workplaces, and blue-collar workers. Results & Conclusions: To date, over 50 work teams have signed-up to the BeUpstanding toolkit in this phase. The primary focus of this soft launch phase is understanding: (1) who is using the toolkit, including the characteristics of both the work teams and the champions; (2) how it is being implemented, including adaptations of materials; and, (3) the associated barriers and facilitators. This practice-based evidence generated will be used to inform the national implementation trial.
