Exercise time was commonly 30 min. scheduled during the regular working day. The radiographers voluntarily answered a questionnaire at the start and end of the study. 84% (16/19) answered the questionnaire at study start, 88% (15/17) at the end of the study. Start/baseline: 5 basic questions; study end: 5 basic questions +7 additional questions. At start and the end 100% answered that they in a great/very great extend enjoyed exercise. At start 94% (15/16) answered that exercise during working hours is important/very important. At the end, 80% (12/15) answered important/very important, 3/15(20%) answered somewhat important. At start, 81% (13/16) answered that exercise contributed to a positive working environment to a large/very large extent, 19% (3/16) to some extent. The corresponding results at the end were: 75% (12/16) to a large/very large extent, 25% (4/16) to some extent.
