Not only does this help you as a company, but it also shows that you care about your most important asset – your people.
Did you know?
Musculoskeletal disorders like back, neck and shoulder pain equate to 30% of workplace sickness absence. So assessing, treating and managing these conditions is very important. Providing early access to services like physiotherapy can mean that symptoms are treated before they become chronic and are far more manageable.
Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessments involve reviewing an employee’s workstation, chair, equipment and environment to help reduce the health risks of working with display screen equipment. During the assessment, changes can be made immediately (where possible). After the assessment, a report is compiled which makes recommendations and provides advice to both the employee and employer.
As an employer, you are required to:
- Protect workers from the health risks of working with display screen equipment
- Carry out workstation assessments
- Reduce risks and ensure workers take breaks from DSE and change the activity
- Provide an eye test if asked
- Provide training and information
Assessments can be provided onsite or remotely. They are always supported by a thorough report. This contains advice and recommendations about where improvements can be made.
