We specialise in providing DSE Health & Safety Consultancy Services for companies around the UK. Our range of services include on-site and online workstation assessments and training courses, assisting Employers to fulfil the challenging legal obligations required by Display Screen Equipment Regulations.
Our mission is to provide an efficient and cost effective service that best suits your individual company requirements. We understand organising and completing an assessment program, particularly for large numbers of employees can be a challenging task. Therefore, our services are designed with this in mind and will minimise the number of hours required by your own in house resources to ensure compliance with current regulations.
The Law and your obligations as an employer
By law and in accordance with The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 (as amended 2002) employers must seek to protect health by reducing the risks associated with working with computers, workstations and Display Screens (for more information visit www.hse.gov.uk/msd/dse). It is a legal requirement for an employer to ensure each individual computer user’s workstation is assessed with the aim of lowering risk by implementing appropriate precautions. The assessment should consider the ergonomic design of equipment, furniture, work organisation and routines, working environment and posture.
The Regulations also require the employer to provide adequate health and safety training relating to working with computers, helping employees to identify and minimize their own risk.
All of our services are designed to ensure compliance with the DSE Regulations offering adequate training material for each user and completion of a comprehensive checklist to provide a clear recording of findings. Our training material provides employers and employees with a basic understanding of the Regulations, highlighting measures to reduce risk.
