Time use of daily work and leisure time behaviours was treated as two compositions of activities performed within a 24-h day. Work and leisure time were defined as a 3-part composition, both consisting of time spent on sedentary (i.e. sitting or lying), standing and active (i.e. walking, running, stair climbing or cycling).

Compositional means were used to describe the day-to-day pattern of work and leisure time physical behaviours [24, 33]. These were obtained by calculating the geometric mean of each physical behaviour of the respective compositions and then normalising the geometric means to the workers’ average accelerometer-derived daily work and leisure time (i.e. 450 min and 450 min, respectively). On non-workdays, the leisure time composition consisted of daily waking time, normalised to the workers’ average accelerometer-derived daily time spent awake (i.e. 960 min).
