Direct Access DSE Workstation Assessments

All employers must protect employees from health risks who are required to work for more than an hour at a time or habitually with display screen equipment (DSE), using a PC, laptop, tablet and/or smartphone.

Our assessors will ensure your organisation is compliant with The Health and Safety Executive (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations and ensure your employees are safe and fully productive in the workplace.
