DSE Workstation Assessment

What is a DSE workstation assessment?

A poorly arranged workstation can result in posture-related ill health, presenteeism, sick leave and even compensation.

To support an employee’s health and well-being, you need to get your ergonomics right.

Think prevention, not response!  DSE ergonomic workstation assessments play a key role in an employee’s well-being. Don’t just comply with the current HSE regulations, go beyond them.

Our workplace assessments are carried out by healthcare professionals (chartered physiotherapists) with specialist training in ergonomics. We carry out functional workstation assessments, looking at the relationship between the individual’s posture, work environment and the tasks she or he carries out. The assessments are tailored to each individual’s needs.  They are designed to identify hazards and risks to improve workstation set-up, ease musculoskeletal discomfort and improve well-being and productivity.

We change what we can during the workstation assessment and educate both the employee and the employer. Each workstation assessment is followed up by a report setting out our recommendations for change.

We are independent of any product and furniture suppliers.
