Make sure you are working safely with display screen equipment

Date: Friday 18 February 2022

All employers must protect workers from the health risks of working with display screen equipment (DSE).

The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) provides guidance featuring a step-by-step guide to working safely with DSE and covers a range of topics, from workstations and assessments to eyesight testing.

Incorrect use of DSE or poorly designed workstations or work environments can lead to pain in necks, shoulders, backs, arms, wrists and hands, as well as fatigue and eye strain.

In addition, HSE has guidance on what you and your workers need to know about working with DSE from home.

The HSE website also has related resources including a free-to-download leaflet Working with Display Screen Equipment and and a workstation checklist to help you comply with the Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992.
