A structured health intervention to improve physical activity, nutrition and sleep in offshore windfarm workers

Research projects

Project Description:

This Research Project is part of the Aura CDT’s The wellbeing triad: improving the physical, psychosocial, and cognitive health of workers in the offshore windfarm sector Cluster.

Offshore wind farm working environments are not conducive to a healthy lifestyle. Evidence shows that offshore technicians spend most of their time being sedentary when working and the small amount of time spent in physical movement is often physically intense, leading to a high cardiovascular load. Yet there has been limited attention to health promotion efforts. This project will develop and test in a pilot study a structured health Intervention that is multicomponent and theory-driven, targeting physical activity, diet and excessive sitting.
