DSE Assessments

National provider of display screen equipment (DSE) assessments to meet your legal responsibilities and keep your employees safe at work.

What is a DSE assessment?

A Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessment is for office-based workers to ascertain whether there are any issues in the workplace that need attention and to suggest any tools and/or mechanisms with which the employee can improve comfort at work.

It will also assist the employer in meeting its obligations that are documented in the Health & Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 as amended by the Health & Safety (Miscellaneous Amendments) Regulations 2002.

Employers therefore have a legal requirement to provide Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessments to ensure they are fully compliant with The Health and Safety Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Regulations (1992).

All employees who use computers or other screen-based equipment, for more than one hour a day, are considered to be a “DSE user” and are required to have a DSE assessment.

The DSE assessment risk assesses your employee’s workspace where they may be using a computer, iPad, and/or other devices, such as a phone. It ensures their working environment and equipment meet regulatory standards and they are using the equipment correctly.

When does my employee need a DSE assessment?

  • When they are a new starter joining your company.
  • They become pregnant and need a new risk assessment.
  • There are significant changes to their working environment or equipment (i.e. an office move, or working from home)
  • They notice discomfort whilst working at home or in the office.
  • A health condition or injury is impacting them at work.
  • Every two years to maintain regular review of risk.
