Level 1 DSE Workstation Assessment
Our fastest, simplest workstation assessment will identify set-up problems to help improve the comfort of users with musculoskeletal complaints.
All our face-to-face DSE assessments will take place by telephone consultation due to coronavirus (COVID-19). Please continue to book the appointment as normal and we will automatically switch you to our remote service. This closely mirrors the face-to-face assessment, offering the same level and quality of service that you would normally expect. Read more.
What is a Level 1 DSE Workstation Assessment ?
Get to the root of work-related musculoskeletal pain with our Level 1 DSE Workstation Assessment. This is a 30-minute one-to-one session designed to identify and help eliminate musculoskeletal problems related to DSE activities. By ‘problems’, we mean anything that could be aggravating, contributing, or even causing an employee to have discomfort whilst working with DSE.
With this assessment we aim to review and improve the workstation set-up to help alleviate musculoskeletal discomfort and, as a result, improve the wellbeing and productivity of your employees.
A standard level of information will be recorded. If you require the report to include photographs, measurements and more in-depth observations then you may prefer to book our Level 2 DSE Workstation Assessment.
Who is the Level 1 DSE Workstation Assessment for?
The DSE Workstation Assessment is for people who are already experiencing discomfort or pain at their DSE workstations and need advice and recommendations. Usually this assessment is undertaken following a DSE Compliant Assessment that has failed to resolve any issues reported.
What happens in a Level 1 DSE Workstation Assessment?
The assessment will be carried out by a member of our assessment team. All of our assessors are trained DSE assessors with extensive product knowledge. The assessor will undertake a series of checks and ask questions about the reported problems.
Following the assessment, a report will be submitted to the appropriate contact. This will address the reason for the assessment, highlight any relevant areas of concern and provide product recommendations with justifications.
What happens when I book a Level 1 DSE Workstation Assessment?
Once a request has been made to book an appointment, the user will receive a proposed date and time. This can either be accepted or rejected - at the click of a button. If accepted, the user will receive reminders leading up to the appointment, plus real-time tracking on the assessor’s whereabouts on the day. If our suggested time is rejected, the user has the chance to write any notes or suggestions for a more convenient time and date.
Does this assessment make us fully compliant with DSE regulations?
Not fully. Our DSE Workstation Assessments are focused on increasing the musculoskeletal comfort of your users. To be fully compliant with the regulations, you will need to consider all DSE risks, such as lighting and the surrounding environment. Our DSE Compliant Assessment covers all of the risks you must consider to comply with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992.
