At Safety Forward we provide Workstation and DSE Assessments with Advanced DSE Assessors operating throughout the UK. We can offer advice on how to assess your employees and what measures to put in place to minimise the risk.
Due to many people requiring to work from home at the minute, we are able to carry our DSE assessments through the use of video call. This is particularly useful if you have a member of staff with a disability or may be suffering from a physical pain when using their laptop or computer. We have a dedicated consultant who is a specialist in this area.
When we visit your workplace or your employees home our CIEHF qualified consultant will identify and advise you on areas of deficiencies or individual that is at risk due to poor posture or incorrect equipment. We help many businesses with advice on useful equipment to help people work safely at their desk. Once we have completed our survey the employer will be provided with an action list and suggestions for improvement.
Poorly designed workstations or work environments can lead to pain in necks, shoulders, backs, arms, wrists and hands as well as fatigue and eye strain. The causes may not always be obvious. Good ergonomics is vital to keeping staff pain free when working at their computer. Every employer is required to comply with the Display Screen Equipment Regulations. A good workstation is essential for a productive and healthy workforce. If you would like to know more about our standard, virtual or advanced DSE assessments contact us here.
