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. Shortly after the assessments, a completed assessment form will be sent to you. This form lists observations and any changes made/that need to be made in order to achieve compliance with HSE regulations.
Advanced DSE Assessments
These are one to one sessions and take between forty five minutes to an hour with the employee and are mainly for those with musculoskeletal injuries such as back pain, neck pain or a Work Related Upper Limb Disorder (WRULD).
The Assessor will address both the employee’s ailment and their posture. Ergonomic items and assistive technology may be recommended to help increase that person’s comfort levels at work.
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
These take about 45 minutes per person and include a report with recommendations on what should be done over the two trimester periods whilst at work.
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.
