DSE (Display Screen Equipment) workstation assessment is sometimes referred to as a VDU assessment. An assessment of employees’ workstations is an employer’s legal obligation, and the employer is also required to provide adequate training on the use of DSE in the workplace.
DSE and workstation issues such as repetitive strain injury and other work-related upper limb disorders have been the cause of many significant litigious claims levied upon employers in the UK recently. Employees have often been faced with debilitating injury, with companies facing massive payouts.
Comply at Work can assist your business in meeting legislative obligations by carrying out your DSE workstation assessments. During the process, full consideration is given to the layout of workstations, equipment used, along with operator and environmental factors using a comprehensive format.
When instructing us to conduct your DSE assessments, we automatically incorporate on-the-job training for all operators, personalised during each assessment, along with a written guidance sheet to keep for reference.
We also provide pro-active health initiatives such as keyboard yoga and posture workshops to give further support to staff working for prolonged periods at DSE workstations.
All in all, our assessments, workstation set-up advice, and health initiatives are invaluable in demonstrating that your organisation is doing everything reasonably practicable to control the hazards associated with DSE in the workplace.
