Desk Assessments

Reviewing the employee within the workplace is often valuable to offer further risk assessment and advice to help plan a return to work programme and support them to stay at work whilst they recover from their injury.

Reviewing the employee within the workplace is often valuable to offer further risk assessment and advice to help plan a return to work programme and/or support them to stay at work whilst they recover from their injury. We offer a range of workplace assessment options which can be provided virtually or face-to-face. The type of visit will vary depending on the job role of the employee and the advice you require.

Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessments

 

An advanced DSE assessment involves our occupational health physiotherapist meeting with your employee (either virtually via video or face-to-face) to risk assess their desk-based work area whilst taking into account any injury or health conditions that may be affecting them at work.

This type of assessment can also be used for those who are pregnant or who have concerns that their working environment may be impacting their comfort or health.

All assessments are fully compliant with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) requirements and (The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992) to ensure you are protecting the health of your employee.

Our advanced DSE assessments are completed by an experienced physiotherapist who will write a full ergonomic report. This report clearly outlines all areas of assessment, adjustments made during the assessment, further recommendations, and any self-help strategies we have advised your employee to help them manage their injury.

An advanced DSE assessment is designed to create a positive working environment for the employee and to educate and promote good working behaviours to improve overall health and wellbeing.

Home Worker Assessments

 

Bespoke Wellbeing offers an alternative to a simple box-ticking exercise when it comes to ensuring employees are working safely with display screen equipment (DSE). Our virtual assessments are perfect for employees at work or in their home office and combine an interactive training webinar with an electronic self-assessment form. 

Employees are legally entitled to a workstation assessment if they spend over an hour at a computer or digital screen per day (The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992). The assessment is extremely important to ensure users are not at risk of pain and discomfort at work. Poor DSE can also affect productivity and wellbeing.

The package includes;

Part One: Interactive training webinar

Part Two: Online DSE self-assessment form

Part Three: Review of self-assessments and summary of action points 

The DSE self-assessment form is a checklist review of an employee’s work equipment, environment, work tasks, breaks, and eyesight testing

Education is an integral part of what we do. The webinar provides your employees with advice and tips to look after their physical health and mental wellbeing through good working practices. 

Vocational Workplace Assessments

 

A vocational workplace assessment involves our occupational health physiotherapist meeting the employee at their place of work for a face-to-face assessment.

They are for sedentary desk-based employees or for those in more physically demanding roles who require more support with returning to work after an extended period of absence or significant injury.

The assessment typically takes 2-3 hours and gives your employee the opportunity to discuss their health and work, unpick the work demands required in their role, and importantly compare their ability to complete these inlight of their injury.

Our physiotherapists are also there to assess the environment within the work area to risk assess how the employee can manage but also if any additional equipment or work considerations are required before they return to work.

The vocational workplace assessment report extensively reviews the underlying health condition, fully details the physical demands of the roles, outlines each work related, and any recommendations that you may need to consider.

These assessments are extremely useful for employees who have been off for an extended period of time, are nervous about a return to work or there is not a return to work plan yet in place.

We accept referrals directly from organisations but also case managers and income protection handlers.
