DSE EQUIPMENT (DISPLAY SCREEN EQUIPMENT
A DSE Assessment is an ergonomic survey conducted on each individual work station. The assessment identifies any risk of strain or injury at the workstation and protects the wellness of people who work with computers, tablets and laptops.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 (as amended) apply where employees use computers and other display screens as a significant part of their normal day-to-day work.
Surveys have found that a high proportion of workers report aches, pains or eye discomfort. These aches and pains are sometimes referred to as upper limb disorders (ULDs), which can include a range of medical conditions such as RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury).
A professionally completed DSE Assessment can help identify the risks and hazards of using such devices and can provide guidance and knowledge on how to reduce common issues and injuries.
A fully qualified consultant will attend site and assess each individual that spends sufficient time on such devices that falls under the DSE legislation. They will assess the current workstation setup and highlight any possible or potential issues.
Each DSE Assessment completed will be submitted in a comprehensive report with necessary actions, if required.
