DSE & Workstation Risk Assessments

DSE Assessment

Do you have the time to carry out DSE Risk Assessments? If not, we can help you out.

Risk assessments are essential in order to comply with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992.  A DSE Assessment is usually needed when :

  • a new user starts work
  • a workstation is set-up
  • a change is made to an existing workstation

We can carry out DSE risk assessments for those members of staff that you have identified as users or operators under the HSE regulations. We average of 12-14 assessments per day. We also offer a half day rate for smaller offices.

Assessments You Can Trust

We pride ourselves on having DSE Risk Assessors who have extensive knowledge of human anatomy and ergonomics. You can be confident that you will receive a quality risk assessment and sound advice, impartial advice.

We do not sell any furniture or workstation add-ons and thus we are unbiased in our assessments, with no ulterior motive for making recommendations. 

We also provide specialist assessments. Click here for more details.

What is a DSE Assessment?

A DSE Assessment (also known as an ergonomic assessment or workstation assessment) covers the following:


  • Maintaining the correct working posture
  • The workstation set-up (chair, monitor, keyboard, mouse and other peripherals)
  • Software knowledge and understanding. 
  • Using  the correct furniture to enhance productivity
  • The environment (noise, lighting, temperature, ventilation etc)
  • Any other items that need to be addressed

The Assessor will discuss findings with the user and make any necessary adjustments and recommendations.

You will receive the four page checklist and findings which have been signed by both the Assessor and the employee.
