Workplace ergonomics have come to the forefront in the last few years as a primary concern for both employers and employees with a rise in occupational health illnesses such as Repetitive Strain Injury and Defective Vision becoming a rising risk as development and demands placed upon workplaces by improvements in technology.
Employer’s have a legal duty to assess the risk that poor ergonomics (including the use of Display Screen Equipment / Visual Display Units) poses in their workplaces. Where a risk is identified the employer must undertake to either eliminate or otherwise mitigate that risk by assessing the risk and putting in place control measures.
- Individual work-station or desktop ergonomic assessment including lighting, posture, space, etc.
- Identify adjustments that should be made for users at each work-station
- Compliance with the legal requirements for DSE/VDU and Ergonomics
Advantages offered by DSE/VDU Ergonomic Assessment include:
- Reduce risk of personal injury claims
- Reduce the risk of resultant absenteeism
- Increase productivity of staff through implementation of ergonomics
