Did you know that all employers are compelled by law to assess their employees’ workstations?
Display Screen Equipment (DSE) regulations aim to protect the health of employees who work with screens, whether that’s conventional display screens or emerging technologies such as laptops, touch-screens and other similar devices.
Bad habits and poorly set-up workstations and chairs can lead to physical health problems such as neck, shoulder, back or arm pain, fatigue and eyestrain. In fact, back problems are the cause of 13 million lost work days in the UK every year!
Even mild discomfort or posture problems can significantly lower productivity, so addressing these issues is beneficial to both the employee and the employer.
Our team of experts are qualified to carry out Display Screen Equipment and workstation (DSE) assessments in your workplace, checking legal compliance and ensuring your staff are using their furniture correctly and comfortably. The government has published a web page that addresses more information about DSE assessments.
You might be surprised by how many of your team have problems with their workstation, and the improvements that can be made by a few simple changes. DSE assessments are free of charge for our furniture customers, so there’s nothing to lose and everything to gain!
