What we did
After carrying out DSE risk assessments with individuals at Leicestershire police, we discovered that several employees were suffering with musculoskeletal disorders. We decided a more specific report was needed for certain individuals who had not had their issues resolved internally. Our DSE assessors were able to identify problems and recommend solutions, which mostly consisted of specialist chairs, mice and keyboards.
Our UK-wide team of experienced assessors deliver a range of vehicle and workstation assessments carried out by trained DSE assessors. More in-depth assessments for special cases are delivered by qualified health professionals.
As the UK’s leading supplier of ergonomic equipment, we’re able to recommend and supply the best products for the job. This also comes with advice and after-care to make sure users get the most out of their equipment.
