Workplace DSE Assessments

It is important to ensure that every workstation is correctly set-up for the individual and behaviors are adjusted, to help minimise risk.

Having over 20 years’ experience in delivering Display Screen Equipment (DSE), IPRS Health have adopted a 3-tier structure to our health and safety executive (HSE) compliant DSE assessments which will include working conditions, the environment and its surroundings.

Our DSE assessments are carried out by qualified members of both the Chartered Society of Physiotherapists (CSP) and The Association of Chartered Physiotherapists in Occupational Health and Ergonomic (ACPOHE). Sessions are 1 hour long and each individual will receive a detailed report, full assessment and bespoke recommendations.

How it works?

Our 3-tiered approach:

Level 1

We understand that not everyone will want or require a full clinical DSE assessment. This is a quicker assessment with a shorter report, but which still covers all required areas. They are ideal for those moving office, starting a new job, or indeed for those who want to ensure their staff are assessed but are happy to keep the clinical aspect reduced. It will be delivered by a skilled DSE technician or clinician and audited by a clinical supervisor.

Level 2

This DSE assessment is geared to those with a musculoskeletal issue. It will be carried out and audited by a clinician as they have a greater insight into the problems that will be described. A more detailed report will be provided after a lengthier assessment with the individual.

Level 3

This assessment is a specialist category. This would fall under the title of Reasonable Adjustment Assessment. It may involve multiple issues or possibly a medical concern, which requires a good deal or work, numerous adjustments and extra time spent on site with a detailed final report. We can also arrange for dyslexia assessments, via a partner.

IPRS Health are able to provide clients with a complete service from referral to equipment provision, leaving all the work down to us. We even take care of ordering the recommended equipment by arranging the purchase, delivery and set up.

Who is it designed for?

The assessment can address musculoskeletal or medical concerns but also for anyone who has recently moved from a regular place of work to home working, has a new workstation or simply feels they need specialist advice.

Why use a DSE?

There are many benefits in our DSE Assessments:

  • Advice, actions and recommendations provided based on your individual circumstances
  • Reducing injuries as a result of a poorly set-up workstation
  • Reduces absenteeism, MSDs account for approximately 35% of all days lost due to work-related ill health
  • Increases work productivity
