DSE assessments in Southampton

At Workhappy, our DSE experts in Southampton are ready to take your organisation beyond compliance with our team-centred workstation assessments. 

If you're responsible for organising DSE assessments in Southampton, our experts can help you make life happier and more comfortable for your teams. And because we recognise that all companies are unique, we'll find the right solution for all your workers — in the office or at home.

Why do my team members need workstation assessments?

Musculoskeletal problems are the most common cause of work-related health issues. From eye strain and headaches to back pain and RSIs, display screen equipment (DSE) can contribute to a range of issues. As a result, under the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992, you're legally required to provide workstation risk assessments to identify and mitigate risks.

It’s important to note that the obligation covers both
in-office workers and any remote or home-based employees.

You'll need to carry out ergonomic assessments:

  • As part of onboarding new employees

  • When a workstation is set up for the first time

  • When any changes are made to a workstation set up

  • When an employee reports pain and discomfort

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

Our workstation assessments

If you need DSE assessments in Southampton, our experts take a customer-first approach. We'll look at the user, the work they're carrying out, their equipment and their work environment. Then we'll identify the risks to health and wellbeing and recommend ways to improve employee comfort and productivity.

At Workhappy, ergonomic assessments are much more than a tick-box exercise. So our DSE experts in Southampton go beyond compliance to solve real-life problems and implement DSE best practices. 

Whether you need DSE compliance fast with an online self-assessment or you need a fully managed DSE service, we’re here to help. Take a look at the services we have on offer:

DSE assessor training

Alternatively, if you’d like your employees to undergo DSE assessor training, we can help with that, too.
