DSE Workstation Assessments
We can give you clear, practical advice to make your workstation safe, comfortable and productive.
Risk assessments for Display Screen Equipment (DSE) users are a legal requirement throughout Europe (as is user training). This can be achieved in several different ways including:
our qualified ergonomists conducting DSE assessments of your workstations
training users to adjust and assess their own workstations using our online software package Ergopoint supported by trained ergonomists for high risk or complex cases.
Benefits of our DSE workstation assessments
We ensure that our clients not only comply with the law but also gain real benefit from the assessments. Our DSE assessments are not a 'tick box' exercise but an opportunity to:
improve productivity and quality
cut compensation claims
improve customer service
ensure in-house staff are deployed in most appropriate way for your business
improve return on investment in display screen equipment, office furniture and environment.

- Prioritised. To allow you to plan which changes you implement first.
- Customised. We provide any combination of assessment and training to meet your specific requirements.
- Supportive. We will continue to work with you to ensure you get the best from your assessment programme.
Ergopoint DSE assessment software
We work with Humantech's Ergopoint software and training package to help organisations prioritise and manage their DSE assessments.
The system has three parts:
- a training module
- a self-assessment questionnaire and user action plan
- an administrator database.
Both the training and self-assessment modules can be customised,
allowing you to tailor the package to your specific requirements.
The administrator database is user-friendly and makes it easy to quickly follow up assessments, authorise equipment requests and prepare reports.

What do our clients say?
I just wanted to say that I think the first round of assessments can be judged a success. Everyone was impressed with Charlie and Catherine's professionalism and knowledge. Several staff have told me they have been given useful practical advice which they intend to implement which in itself makes the exercise worthwhile.
