And that makes things complicated. If you have 30 homeworkers, that means you’re responsible for making sure 30 electronic set ups and their working environment is DSE compliant. It gets even more difficult when you need to assess an employee who is in pain or discomfort while working. As an employer or manager you are responsible for conducting home working DSE assessments ensuring that your team is working safely at home.
“As an employer, you have the same health and safety responsibilities for people working at home as for any other worker.” - www.hse.gov.uk
Where to begin? The process of conducting a DSE risk assessment for homeworkers can seem confusing, complex, and time-consuming. But it doesn’t need to be. Start by contacting us and booking in a home-working DSE assessment.
With the advent of Covid, we had to suddenly adapt to most of our employees working from home. From a DSE and compliance perspective, it seemed an absolute nightmare. We weren't sure how to proceed.
Workhappy solved all of our concerns. Using a mixture of their self-assessment, virtual, and in-person services, we were able to keep our team members safe and happy, and reach full compliance quickly and easily. They’re clearly experts at what they do, but they’re also extremely helpful and surprisingly affordable. Thank you!
Our DSE risk assessments are thorough and up-to-date, based on the latest government guidance and regulations. That means you’ll be fully compliant. Our home-working DSE assessments ensure your workforce will benefit from the latest advice and research to keep them pain-free while working.
Each employee is automatically given bespoke, customised training on how to set up their workstation to minimise safety and DSE risks based on where and how they work.
Employees then fill out a quick questionnaire that’s intelligently customized to where they work in order to make sure their assessment is specific to their needs, respectful of their time, and doesn’t include any unnecessary filler.
We go out of our way to make sure your employees don’t have to. Our workstation risk assessments happen on their schedule, wherever they work, and can be part of a fully managed DSE service.
Wherever your staff are based, we can visit them at home and make sure they’re working safely. Pick a time and place, and we’ll be there for an in person DSE assessment.
