What is a Specialist Computer Workstation Assessment?
This assessment focuses on identified concerns so that changes and recommendations can be made to help the user manage more complicated musculoskeletal DSE workstation issues.
With this assessment we review and aim to improve the workstation set-up to help alleviate musculoskeletal discomfort and issues reported, and recommend any further changes that may improve the comfort of the workstation for the person concerned.
This assessment will collect specific information about the user’s reported issues, including observation, measurements and photographs undertaken at a single DSE workstation.

What happens in a Specialist Computer Workstation Assessment?
The assessment will be carried out by a health professional with in-depth knowledge of musculoskeletal issues and ergonomics training, or an ergonomist with specialist knowledge in workstation issues. Users will be observed working at the DSE workstation and their issues discussed to try to identify possible influencing factors. A series of observations will be made, during which measurements and photographs will be taken to facilitate a clearer report.
Following the assessment, a clear report will be written which will focus on the reason for the assessment, highlight any relevant areas of concern, any changes made and provide recommendations (where relevant) with justifications.
As this assessment and report is likely to contain personal and medical information, the user will need to provide consent.
