Advanced DSE Assessments

Advanced DSE Assessment

Our Advanced DSE Assessments are detailed DSE assessments which are carried out onsite and followed with a written report detailing the Assessor’s findings.

An Advanced DSE Assessment may be recommended for a DSE user who:

  • Is returning to work following accident, illness or injury.
  • Has a condition which affects their ability to work efficiently for instance someone with with dyslexia or with a visual or hearing impairment.
  • Is experiencing Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI) or a Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD) or back pain which is impairing their ability to work comfortably.
  • Is an expectant mother.
  • Is a mobile worker.

Quality Assessors You Can Trust

You can be confident that you will receive a quality risk assessment alongside sound and impartial advice on how to help avoid becoming injured or unwell as a result of using DSE equipment incorrectly.

We DO NOT sell DSE accessories, furniture or chairs. Our assessments are presented to you with no ulterior motives or ‘must have’ shopping lists.

We also offer other health and safety assessments to help you comply with regulations.

An Advanced DSE Assessment : What To Expect

 

A detailed medical history will be taken including symptoms and how they present. 

The workstation, environment, task and posture are analysed. Postural training is given where appropriate.  Any necessary adjustments to equipment will be made where possible.

A summary of necessary actions such as adaptations, change of equipment etc. will be discussed and noted.

A detailed report of the assessment and its findings will be sent to you. It will list any specific recommendations for equipment, accessories and postural information designed to help improve comfort levels and decrease pain.

DSE risk assessment

I found this session very educating and it has shed light on many points that I had no idea could affect my health. I am now well informed on procedures to follow and ensure a healthy workspace. Helen was fantastic!

Standard DSE Assessments
Every employee working regularly at a workstation should have one of these. Lasting around 20 minutes, the Assessor will  assess the workstation to make sure it is set up correctly and to identify any risks.

Clinical DSE Assessments

A clinical DSE Assessment carried out by one of our highly trained clinicians may be suitable for a user who:

  • has a long history of medical intervention
  • a severe disability or impairment
  • needs specialist equipment
  • has a complex/multiple condition(s)

Maternity DSE Assessments
Lasting about 45 minutes per person, these assessments include a report with recommendations on what should be done over the two trimester periods whilst at work to keep the expectant mother and unborn child comfortable and safe.

Assistive Technology Workstation Assessments
These are for workers with varying disability levels.  We match the person’s disability to the best assistive technology.  Each evaluation is based on the individual’s needs and may include augmentative communication, mobility, environmental control or computer access.

Home Worker Assessments
These can be simple home workstation assessments or more complex depending on the employee’s circumstances and/or ailment. We can visit your employee’s home to carry out a thorough DSE Risk Assessment, which will include recommendations to ensure a safe and comfortable work environment at home.

Online DSE Self Assessments
Our very popular and easy to use online DSE Self Assessment solutions are designed to save time and money when there are many workstations and/or they are geographically spread making a traditional assessment too costly.
