Under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) regulations (1992), organisations are legally required to conduct a specific display screen risk assessment for personnel who are classed as being users of this equipment. Employees fall into this category if they meet the following criteria:

  • They use the display screen equipment (DSE) on a daily basis
  • They use this equipment for an hour or more at a time
  • They could not do their job without the DSE.

These risk assessments must cover the:

  • Screen
  • Keyboard
  • Mouse
  • Software
  • Workstation furniture
  • Working environment (this includes variables like lighting and heating)

Our free assessment involves the following and normally we would charge £25 for this service

  • Analysis and audit of DSE users in your workplace and the requirement for assessment
  • We will then conduct a free assessment around a single workspace
  • Assessment of the workspace in question to cover all areas covered in HSE guidance
  • Interview with worker to discuss the workstation, equipment, environment and any comment or concern they may have
  • Full report and findings produced with recommendation
