Display screen equipment (DSE) assessments are part of an employer’s ongoing duty of care to protect their workers in relation to the risks that they may be exposed to whilst working with their PCs, laptops, tablets and / or smartphones.  All DSE assessments must follow the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations which apply to all employees that use this equipment for more than an hour per day.

It is good practice to complete these assessments annually, or at the very least, every two years. However, you may want to renew a DSE assessment if an employee has:

  • A new workstation is setup
  • A new employee starts work
  • A change is made to a workstation
  • Employee complains of pain/discomfort
  • An employee becomes pregnant

We highly recommend providing all employees with a basic DSE assessment through our “Online DSE Assessment” packages. This will enable you to meet your health and safety requirements as well as flag any employees who may require a more support or a more in-depth assessment if their concerns or risks are not adequately controlled.
