Where there are risks, the employer must take steps to reduce them.
Employers should look at:
- the entire workstation, including equipment, furniture, and work conditions
- the job being completed
- any special requirements, for example a user with a disability
While traditional paper based DSE assessment methods can be effective, they often lack the efficiency, accuracy, and scalability required for modern workplaces. This is where technology steps in, offering a transformative approach to DSE management.
The easiest, hassle-free way for your organisation to become DSE compliant is by using DSE software.
Some of the benefits of investing in DSE software, are outlined below.
- Streamlined Processes and Enhanced Compliance
- Customised Assessments and Personalised Recommendations
- Enhanced Reporting and Data-Driven Insights
- Improving Employee Well-being and Productivity
