VDU Assessments & Training
RSI and back problems are just two common injuries sustained through poor design and use of workstations. The result is sick leave and, in extreme cases, loss of a valued employee through permanent disability. Although the assessments can be time consuming, and the health consequences sometimes being serious. Completing a suitable Risk Assessment you are not only protecting the employee from possible injury, you are also helping to protect yourself as a responsible employer against compensation claims.
The legal obligation to complete workstation assessments enables you to take simple preventative action. An employee self assessment form is completed first, which is then followed up with a physical inspection of the workplace.
Advice will be given to the employee on factors such as how to organise their work space, and how to sit properly for optimum comfort. Information is given to the employer on general improvements such as positioning of computer equipment and selection of chairs.
