One of the quickest and most efficient way to improve workplace performance and reduce the work related stress on the body is to under take a personal Display Screen Equipment assessment. We have qualified ergonomic consultants who will visit your office and provide an extensive, personal DSE service. They won’t just improve your workspace but they will also impart some great advice for you to capitalise on in the future.
There are 3 different levels of assessment that we offer:
Required DSE – A required DSE involves a basic questionnaire to see if you meet the legal DSE requirements.
Remedial DSE – This is is a more comprehensive, face to face assessment which includes an extensive written report for your records.
Complex DSE – This is a more in depth assessment aimed at those who suffer from a medical problem and require a more profound and holistic approach tailored to their specific needs, requirements and their unique history of back problems.
When you engage our services we will not stop at just assessing you, but will also provide you with a report to inform you of the best way to move forward in creating a work friendly office space. If new equipment is required we will advise on the most appropriate products. If an upgrade to a more ergonomic chair is advisable, Back2 can provide it on trial basis to ensure that the selected alternative seating will address your back issues and postural problems, and that it is compatible with the rest of your equipment.That way you can benefit from our expertise and experience tailored to your individual circumstances and put to test in your work environment.
If you are wondering what the guidelines for DSE assessments are and how they may affect your business, let us introduce you to the problem. These guidelines are written formulated in an attempt to protect those who habitually use display screen equipment. This means that every person that works in an office and uses display screens for one hour or more is subject to a standard DSE assessment provided by their employer. Assessments for serious medical conditions should be provided by a qualified medical practitioner. The guidelines follow the government legislation created in 1992 and then amended in 2002.
How can I find out if my chairs are legally compliant?
There is one very important question you should be asking and that is if the chairs you provide your staff are legally compliant. The government has written the minimum requirements an office chair must meet, which can be found on the Governments Health and Safety Executive website under ‘Seating at Work’, and a standard DSE assessment can easily determine if your seating meets the legal requirements.
