DSE stands for Display Screen Equipment and applies to all businesses with more than 15 people. As part of the Health and Safety Regulations Act 1992, DSE is an assessment that must be carried out for your employees and their workstations.
DSE deals with computer workstations or equipment, which can be associated with neck, shoulder, back or arm pain, as well as with fatigue and eyestrain. Surveys have found that a high proportion of DSE workers report aches, pains or eye discomfort.
These problems can be avoided if users follow effective practice, set up their workstations properly and take breaks during prolonged use.
That’s why your business needs to be covered for DSE, as companies have been fined up to ￡300,000 if they are not complying with the rules of DSE.
