Even staff who sit at a desk for the majority of their working day can be at risk of workplace injury. In fact, they can sometimes be more at risk than those who don’t. Poorly set up work stations can lead to postural problems that cause back and neck pain as well as eye strain and elevated stress levels.
Workstation Assessments, or DSE (Display Screen Equipment) Assessments are an evaluation of each employee’s workspace and can help identify any potential risks to their health. They’re key to helping staff avoid developing long term health issues that result in reduced productivity or increased sickness absence.
By educating staff and making simple adjustments to where they work, you can help them prevent musculoskeletal injuries and support those who already suffer with muscular pains and strains.
Our workstation assessments also ensure that you are complying with Health and Safety legislation. The Health & Safety (DSE) Regulations outline the duty of care that you have towards your staff, ensuring that they’re not at risk from their working environment.
Agile In Work’s workstation assessments are carried out by Chartered Physiotherapists who have vast experience of working with musculoskeletal injuries and an in depth understanding of the ergonomic factors needed to keep your staff healthy and pain free.
