Display Screen Equipment (DSE)

Here is what the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) says:

"Computer workstations or equipment can be associated with neck, shoulder, back or arm pains, fatigue and eyestrain. These aches and pains are sometimes called upper limb disorders (ULDs) or repetitive strain injuries (RSI). These problems can be avoided by following good practice.
Display screen equipment (DSE) is any work equipment having a screen that displays information. Typical examples are computer screens often called monitors or VDUs. Surveys have found that high proportions of DSE workers report aches, pains or eye discomfort. Mostly, these conditions do not indicate any serious ill health, but it makes sense to avoid them as far as possible.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations aim to protect the health of people who work with DSE. That does not mean that DSE work is risky - it isn't, if the user follows good practice like setting up their workstation well and taking breaks in intensive work. The Regulations were introduced because DSE has become one of the commonest kinds of work equipment. So, there is potential to make work more comfortable and productive for very large numbers of people by taking a few simple precautions."

With our extensive expertise and experience in workstation ergonomics as well as in the prevention and management of MSDs, we provide a full range of assessments for display screen equipment (DSE) users.

 

Assessments are non-disruptive and are conducted at the individual's work station by one of our experts to assess the potential risks. As part of the assessments we will provide each user with guidance in achieving the optimum arrangement and posture, and help you the employer achieve compliance.

In most cases the optimum workstation set up can be achieved by adjustments to your existing equipment, which would incur no further charge. Where additional or replacement equipment is required, we will always recommended the most cost-efficient solution.
