Workplace Assessments

Workstation DSE Assessments

DSE and Work Station Assessments are part of Prevention and Recovery Strategies

Assessments are often requested as employees return to work following a Musculoskeletal Issue. They should also be part of a business strategy to help keep employees fit and healthy, decreasing the probability of Musculoskeletal Sickness Absence.

An employee’s ergonomically incorrect set up can mean an increased risk of musculoskeletal problems. We assess employees in their normal work environment and set up so we can analyse the true situation. These assessments are individual for each employee and the checks include working heights, equipment, body position, alignment.

Our practice is based on the information by the Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomics (ACPOHE) and follows guidelines set out by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).

Employees usually get tips and advice on the day for things they can implement immediately e.g. Chair set up & screen height. A more detailed report will then be written and sent to the business with advice and action points if needed.

There is basic advice about workstation and DSE set up on our website and that of the HSE if you want to try this before the action of getting a full Assessment.

“The service we receive is fantastic and has had a positive effect on the attendance at depot whilst supporting colleagues through rehabilitation plans.”
