A DSE or Workstation Assessment from Occupational Health Recruitment

All too often, the benefits of a thorough workstation assessment are overlooked. We have the DSE training, qualifications and experience to ensure your company meets health and safety law, and can make working life better for your members of staff.

We can offer a basic DSE assessment, or a more advanced workstation assessment. The simpler DSE assessment involves half an hour on the phone with one of our occupational health nurses, who has the qualifications and training to ask all the right questions about the keyboard, monitor, mouse, chair and other aspects of the working environment.

The more advanced workstation assessment is held face to face with an assessor with a similar level of DSE Work Station assessment training, and takes up to an hour. For both this and our other type of DSE Workstation assessment, we supply a comprehensive and confidential report afterwards. This type of workplace assessment is suited to staff who clearly need some help with pain management.

Our OH Advisors also have the training and expertise to help pregnant employees with a DSE Workstation assessment. They have the qualifications, knowledge and training to advise on everything from hazardous substances to postures and working routines.

What is a DSE Assessment or Workstation Assessment?

A DSE Assessment is also known as a Workstation Assessment or VDU Assessment.

The assessment protects your most valuable asset - your employees - from harm and ensures your business fulfils its legal obligations. The law doesn't expect you to eliminate risk completely, but a workplace assessment allows you to focus on those risks which pose the greatest threat to your workforce's safety. And often, a workplace assessment recommends simple measures to help - it can be as cheap and easy as ensuring all spillages are cleared up promptly.

So a Workstation Assessment doesn't have to be over-complicated. Instead, a Workstation Assessment should be broken down into manageable elements - such as identifying the hazards, as well as who could be harmed, and how. Once a workstation assessment has evaluated the risks, and recommended the precautions to be taken, findings from it should be recorded and implemented.

The other thing to remember about a Workstation Assessment is that it needs to be reviewed and updated regularly, otherwise an out of date Workstation Risk Assessment becomes effectively meaningless.

In many organisations, the risks are already known, and the necessary measures easily applied. And, remember, a Workstation Assessment can boost productivity and motivation, as well as customer satisfaction, while reducing staff sickness. Especially for larger businesses, it makes sense for an independent advisor to carry out the Workstation Risk Assessment.
