My experience of today’s training is a very positive one, I thought the group was the right size and everyone was very engaged throughout the time – I know that I was. Neil delivers the training in a very professional way and he was very clear in his communication. It was a light hearted delivery, whilst a serious subject and used a basic language so not too technical – highly recommend it. I have come away believing I can do anything…high motivational. Just great!

What is a risk assessment?

A risk assessment is an assessment of what could potentially cause harm to people. Carrying out risk assessments at work help employers to identify any risks and then decide if they need to be acted upon. By carrying out an effective risk assessment, employers can reduce work-related illnesses and disorders. This, in turn sees an increase in staff morale and a decrease in days lost to sickness.

A DSE assessment is a risk assessment specifically designed for the DSE (or workstation) users. That is, someone who regularly uses a display screen as a significant part of their work.

A standard DSE riskAssessment must include the whole workstation, including equipment, furniture, and work conditions.

Furthermore, its suitability for the job being done must be considered. Areas you will learn about include:

  • The correct posture
  • The chair
  • Display screen
  • The keyboard and mouse
  • Desk height and space
  • Eyesight regulations
  • The working environment: lighting, ventilation, glare, cabling, safe access and exit
  • Laptops/notepads and other mobile devices
  • Mobile workers
  • Pregnant workers
  • How to fill in DSE assessment forms for record keeping and compliance.
