What the regulations say
The Health & Safety (Display Screen Equipment-DSE) Regulations came into force on 1st January 1993 (some minor changes were made in 2002). They seek to protect the health of workers by reducing risks from DSE/VDU work.
The regulations require employers to:
- Analyse workstations to assess and reduce risks
- Ensure workstations meet specified minimum requirements
- Plan work activities so that they include breaks or changes of activity
- Provide eye & eyesight tests on request, and special spectacles if needed
- Provide information & training
For example, you need to consider a DSE assessment for home workers using laptops and IT equipment in their home offices as a part of their duties.
These regulations should not impose any extra burden on your business. They simply re-impose a duty that:
- you complying with Health & Safety at Work (1974)
- is implicit in your wider health and safety duties to your employees
You are reminded that you have – and will continue to have – a general duty to:
- Carry out a DSE Assessment’s to identify the wellbeing of your all your staff.
- Regularly review DSE Assessment’s and make any necessary changes or provide training
- Pay particular attention to women of child bearing age and staff with disabilities when carrying out or reviewing a DSE Assessment’s
