Display Screen Equipment
All staff who are required to use Display Screen Equipment (DSE) to carry out their work should have an assessment by their local DSE Assessor to establish whether they are classified as a ‘user’ under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 as amended by the Health & Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2002.
Please contact your line manager or Departmental Safety Co-ordinator to have this carried out.
Following an initial assessment by your local DSE Assessor a fuller assessment may be required. If any health issues are felt to be as a result of the ‘Workstation’ then a Work-Related Ill Health Referral should be made to Occupational Health.
Before a referral to Occupational Health can be made a full DSE assessment must have been carried out.
