Do you need help carrying out DSE Risk Assessments.
There is a legal requirement under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 to conduct a specific Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Risk Assessment for employees classed as users of DSE.
Employees meet this classification of user if they meet the following criteria:
- They use DSE on a daily basis;
- They use DSE for an hour or more at a time;
- They could not do their job without DSE.
The DSE Risk Assessment should cover:
- The screen;
- The keyboard;
- The mouse;
- The software;
- The furniture (desk, chair etc.);
- The environment (heating, lighting etc.)
Comply UK Cambridge can assist with your risk assessment requirements on your behalf, or we can assist you to carry them out by providing forms, examples and support.
We can also provide Display Screen Equipment Assessor Training.
Please note that a DSE risk assessment and many other services can also be covered as part of our Health and Safety Membership Scheme.
Employers often downplay the importance of Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessments, sometimes referred to as VDU assessments, but without one in place you could be causing long-term damage to the health of your employees.
DSE assessments can be time-consuming so you may choose to outsource support with conducting them, which is where we come in.
We provide you with a dedicated Health & Safety consultant who will conduct an efficient DSE/VDU assessment to help you comply with your obligations as an employer.
This means that there is one less thing for you to worry about!
