DSE assessments in Newcastle

Workhappy helps you take care of your employees with DSE assessments in Newcastle. No matter what size team you have, we can ensure you adopt ergonomic best practices, so your staff can work safely, comfortably, and happily.

Sitting at a desk for extended periods of time can cause an array of short and long-term health issues. So completing DSE assessments is more than just a box-ticking exercise. Poorly set up workstations can lead to fatigue, eyestrain and musculoskeletal injuries that compromise the safety and performance of your teams.

Whether you need one DSE assessment or 1000, we’ll help you find the perfect format for your needs. Learn more about us and how we’re helping businesses across the UK work happier. All of our DSE experts are fully qualified by the Chartered Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors, and we’ve even been acknowledged by top companies and organisations, including Netflix, Visa, and the NHS.

Who needs workstation assessments?

As an employer, you're legally responsible for carrying out workstation risk assessments for any worker who uses DSE for at least one hour a day. In addition, under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992, you have a duty to protect your employees from DSE health risks, including carpal tunnel syndrome, eye strain and backache.

You should undertake ergonomic assessments:

  • For new starters

  • Whenever an employee moves to a new workstation

  • When a workstation is altered in any way

  • When an employee's physical circumstances change through illness, injury or pregnancy

  • If a team member reports any discomfort

Find the right DSE assessments for your Newcastle teams

At Workhappy, we can do anything from quickly getting you HSE-compliant to acting as your own DSE department. 

Our workstation risk assessments look at the entire DSE setup, including screen, keyboard and mouse placement, chair height, lighting and posture. We'll focus on training and information, risk assessment and risk management — because we're interested in health and happiness, not giving you a sales pitch.

DSE assessor training

If you’d prefer, we also offer free DSE assessor training for your employees. If you’d like to train some of your team members so they can carry out basic DSE assessments in-house, our experts in Newcastle can help. 
Our assessor training course is in line with current Health and Safety Executive guidance on DSE regulations so you can ensure your company remains 100% compliant with UK health laws.

We can send one of our Workhappy DSE experts to your Newcastle office or you can come to us. Alternatively, we can set up a remote training session — just give us a call to discuss what would work best for you. Either way, we’ll make sure your staff get engaging, hands-on training that will provide them with the knowledge they need to become your internal DSE assessors.
And once you've improved the comfort and safety of your teams, try our wellbeing services to minimise stress, promote positivity and look after your employees' mental and physical health.
