DSE Employer Obligations


Risk assessments for Display Screen Equipment (DSE) workstations and users are a legal requirement throughout Europe (as well as user training). Red Kite Ergonomics has over 20 years experience of working with a wide range of companies to help them meet their legal requirements in realtion to these regulations.

As an employer you have certain responsibilities to employees using DSE equipment under the Health and Safety
(Display Screen Equipment) regulations 1992 (amended 2002)
These obligations extend to those people contracted to work from home.


The regulations put into UK law a European Community Directive which seeks to protect the health of your workers by reducing risks from VDU work. Office based employees are exposed to potential long-term health effects through using DSE. Minor aches and pains can develop and become serious chronic conditions. Briefly, the Regulations require employers to:

·        analyse DSE workstations to assess and reduce risks ensure that DSE workstations meet specified minimum  requirements;

·        plan work activities so that they include breaks or changes of activity;

·        provide eye and eyesight tests on request, and special spectacles if needed;

·        provide information and training (DSE Training)

We can provide a range of assessments, from those aimed at complying with Health and Safety DSE regulations to a clinical ergonomic assessment for employees suffering from musculoskeletal disorders or disabilities that may be significantly impacting on their work.
