DSE Training and advice
During our assessments we provide suitably pitched advice to users, to allow them to make adjustments and monitor their own working arrangements. Our training informs users about their duties as employees, and your role as their employer. We provide guidance on taking rest breaks, and useful exercises and stretches to ease muscles and joints.
Length of assessments
Our standard assessments take approximately 20 to 30 minutes. Specialist DSE assessments can take up to 1 hour. We make all the adjustments we are able to during the assessment (if adjustments are needed).
What to expect following an assessment
You receive an assessment report for each employee that sets out our findings, prioritised recommendations to address any identified issues and advice on the next steps – e.g. possible replacement input devices (mice etc.), desks and seating, issues to watch out for. When we assess whole offices or teams, we provide an overview report that summarises the recommendations for quick reference.
We are independent of all equipment suppliers and manufacturers so we will only recommend replacement or new equipment if it is necessary and benefits your employees. Our ergonomics advice helps to ensure that suitable equipment or furniture is purchased.
Benefits you can expect include reduced absenteeism, increased worker motivation, productivity, and engagement; and reduced / eliminated legal costs from compensation claims or regulators legal actions.
