What is a DSE desk assessment?

A DSE desk assessment, also known as a ‘display screen equipment’ or ‘ergonomic’ assessment, is a review of your work area, the devices you are using, your work tasks and how you set out your work duties. It forms part of a risk assessment to help reduce musculoskeletal pain or stiffness, headaches and / or eye strain.

It follows a systematic assessment of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) guidelines and provides you with advice on how to manage and risks that are identified.

Do I need a DSE desk assessment?

The short answer is “yes” if you use a screen for more than an hour a day for your work or study tasks. These should be completed every two years or earlier if you change work areas, experience an injury or you become pregnant.

We have self-funded online DSE desk assessment you can book via the “book” button or do speak to your employer to make a formal referral to us at info@bespokewellbeing.co.uk
