DSE assessment


Health and Safety (H&S) regulations require that the employee uses his/her desk with a minimal risk to health.
Health and Safety Executive (HSE) directives for DSE came into force on the 1st of January 1993.

It requires the employers to:

  • -Analyse workstations to assess and reduce risks
  • -Ensure workstations meet specified minimum requirements
  • -Plan work activities so that they include breaks or changes of activity
  • -Provide eye and eyesight tests on request, and special spectacles if needed.
  • -Provide information and training.

Corporate Onsite Therapies can provide DSE (Display Screen Equipment) assessments compatible with H&S regulations with the added benefit of an enhanced knowledge of posture and body mechanics.
The DSE assessment is completed with a written report available to the employee and company.
Corporate Onsite Therapies will for instance have more than the knowledge required to adapt a work place to an employee who has a specific initial back/musculoskeletal complaint, thanks to our medical background.
