Description:Here are two examples of signs placed throughout the facilities of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia, encouraging employees and visitors to make use of the stairways instead of using mechanized means of transport, i.e., elevators.
Taking the stairs is one way to be more physically active. At work, employees are often presented with a choice between taking the stairs and taking an elevator or escalator. Choosing the stairs instead of the elevator is a quick way for people to add physical activity to their day.

Using the stairs requires little additional time, no wardrobe change, and few additional costs because building code requires stairs. If your building has a staircase, why not start using it now?
