Responsible for ensuring your employees are not at risk in the workplace?
Your responsibility for risk assessment
You need to comply with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) 1992 Regulations.
Musculoskeletal conditions (back, knees, shoulders, hands and wrists) are one of the main causes of sickness absence in the workplace.
Seemingly innocuous aspects of the workplace – keyboards, mouse, display screens, furniture and work environment – can result in significant harm and loss of productivity.
The key to addressing this issue is to undertake effective risk assessment, diligently record the planned action and follow-up to ensure those actions being taken.
Not something you always have time for – we do.
