DSE Workstation Assessments

A poorly designed workstation can result in posture-related injuries, ill health, sick leave and in some cases may even lead to compensation.

To support your employees’ health and wellbeing, good ergonomics are essential. After all, prevention is always better than the cure. Our advice? Don’t just comply with the current HSE regulations, exceed them.

Healthcare Professionals

Our workplace assessments are carried out by chartered physiotherapists with specialist training in ergonomics.

We carry out functional workstation assessments which are tailored to each individual’s needs. We look at the relationship between the employee’s posture and the tasks they carry out, to identify existing and potential problems. We look at how workstations could be improved in order to ease musculoskeletal discomfort and improve wellbeing and productivity.

Immediate Action

We take immediate action to improve the workstations during the assessment, explaining each change in order to help educate both the employee and the employer.

Every workstation assessment is then followed up with a report setting out our recommendations for change.

We are completely independent of any product and furniture suppliers.

Remote DSE Assessments

With so many people now working at home, it’s vital to make sure your remote staff are working as safely and comfortably as possible, to avoid the risk of illness and injury.

We offer remote DSE workstation assessment consultations for home workers, via online services such as Skype, Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams and Zoom.

The DSE Assessment Process

Our DSE workstation assessments are carried out by chartered physiotherapists with in-depth knowledge and experience of workplace ergonomics.

Our physiotherapist assessors have extensive expertise in posture and musculoskeletal issues and can advise on postural changes, preventative exercises and exercises to decrease pain.

All advice and exercises are tailored to the needs of each individual.

We’ll listen, and sensitively discuss any relevant medical conditions, workplace requirements and tasks with the individual.

We observe and analyse the environment, the individual’s posture and the tasks the individual carries out at their workstation(s).

Measurements of the individual and workstation components may be taken.

We advise the individual on good ergonomic practices and we make clear recommendations based on the findings of our assessment.
We change what we can whilst onsite, so that you see immediate results.

We’ll send you a written report with recommendations for change within 1-2 days.

The assessment process takes 1-2 hours.
Written consent will be required from the employee prior to the assessment.

We cover London, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire. Get in touch for more information.
