Display Screen Assessments
Worldwide research has identified specific risks to DSE operators, depending on
certain factors that if not assessed and corrected will inevitably reduce the individuals
comfort, well-being and ultimately their efficiency. Consequently, this has resulted
in the government implementing the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment)
Display Screen Equipment (DSE) workers can often experience a wide range of health
problems ranging from eyestrain, blurred vision, headaches, and musculoskeletal
problems including RSI etc.
In accordance with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations
‘users’ of DSE are required to have their workstations assessed. Therefore employers
have a duty to ensure that the assessments are carried out by competent people and
should include input from relevant employees.
Display screen equipment (DSE) is classed as any work equipment that has a screen
that displays information. Typical examples are computer screens often called monitors
or VDUs. During the initial inspection of your premises Citation’s health and
safety consultant will identify and advise your organisation about areas of deficiencies

equipment. Your Health and Safety Management System will contain detailed guidance
on how to complete the assessment and the necessary documentation to enable you
to complete your assessment within your premises.
