DSE Assessment (Computer Workstations)

Relevant Legislation:

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992


Under these Regulations, employers are legally bound to carry out workstation assessments for all staff (known as ‘users’) who habitually use a DSE workstation on behalf of their employer as a significant part of their normal work.

An assessment of a DSE workstation is an analysis of the workstation to assess and reduce risks. The areas assessed include the chair, the desk, the screen, the keyboard, the mouse, the software, the environment, and the information and training provided.

Health problems such as upper limb disorders (ULDs), repetitive strain injuries (RSI), back ache or neck ache, to name but a few, can be associated with badly set up workstations.

Houghton Safety Services Limited can help your employees avoid these problems by either completing the DSE assessments and implementing a review program or by training competent people within your organisation to carry out the DSE assessments themselves.
