Are you compliant with The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992?
These regulations are in place to protect staff members who work with Display Screen Equipment; both conventional graphic display screens and emerging technologies such as smart phones, tablet and touch screens. As an employer, it’s your responsibility to follow regulations that will protect your employees from the health issues associated with DSE. These can include aches, pains, eyestrain, blurred vision, headaches, and musculoskeletal problems including RSI. These regulations are centred on assessing and then minimising risks for all users. It’s also your responsibility to ensure that the assessments are carried out by competent people and should include input from relevant employees.
DCL can advise on how to assess your employees and/or contractors, and what plans to put in place to minimise risk.
