We are delighted to introduce our new Ergonomic Workplace Assessment Service. 

This service provides an individual assessment for an employee and employer to ensure that they are complying with current DSE (Display Screen Equipment) regulations.

The regulations set out a number of criteria relating to workstations, including general recommendations on features for:

  • DSE screens
  • DSE keyboards
  • Desktops
  • Seating
  • Environmental factors i.e. glare, noise and lighting

The aim of a workstation assessment is to examine health and safety aspects of the work carried out; in particular, possible physical discomfort or stress, which left unchecked, could cause ill health or exacerbate pre-existing conditions.

Why are they important?

Technology is a big part of every day life, and businesses are continuously becoming more reliant on Technology; with the use of Display Screen Equipment (DSE) on the increase, it is important to carry out DSE assessments to reduce the risk to employees.

Some of the common issues associated with the use of DSE include:

  • Tiredness
  • Eye Strain
  • Problems with the upper body including the neck, shoulders, back, arms and wrists
  • Aches and pains associated with prolonged use

Carrying out DSE assessments will not only ensure that workstations are suitable, but employees can see improvement in their overall health and well-being.
