Workhappy DSE assessments in Preston

Are you looking for DSE assessments for your team in Preston? Our team of Workhappy experts can help.

We all know that happy, comfortable workers are more productive. However, DSE assessments aren't just nice to have — they're a legal requirement. Whether you have a small team of employees or multiple offices, it’s your responsibility to ensure they have the workstation set-up they need to work safely and avoid common workplace industries. 

At Workhappy, we always take a customer-centred approach and go beyond compliance to put the wellbeing of your employees first. Learn more about us, or feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Why do my employees need a workstation assessment?

The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations make it a legal requirement to protect your staff from the risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE), including monitors, tablets and smartphones.

As an employer, your duty of care extends to all users who work with DSE on a daily basis for an hour or more. And that includes remote and hybrid workers as well as your office-based teams.

Workstation assessments are more than just an annual occurrence. You should also undertake an ergonomic assessment in the following situations:

  • Onboarding new employees

  • First-time setup of a new workstation

  • Any adjustments to a workstation

  • Employees who complain of pain or discomfort

At Workhappy, we offer 1:1 and online assessments so you can get compliant fast and support the wellbeing of your workforce. DSE assessments help:

  • Provide better comfort and wellbeing for your teams

  • Raise awareness of ergonomic best practices

  • Boost productivity

  • Minimise absenteeism

  • Create a supportive Workhappy work culture
