Ergonomics

Ergonomics applies information about human behaviour, abilities and limitations and other characteristics to the design of tools, machines, tasks, jobs and environments for productive, safe, comfortable and effective human use.

The Law

Any employee using a work desk or chair, combined with a computer system, keyboard or input device must undergo a DSE assessment. Our DSE assessors will instruct employees through training and implementation of controls and advise both employees and management on best ergonomic practices and how to best comply with legislation by reducing the risk to employees.

DSE / VDU Assessments

All of our staff are trained to carry out DSE / VDU assessments and will do so as part of an external audit or we will visit your premises specifically for this purpose. We have several Display Screen Equipment assessors on our team. We also have designed a module within our software platform www.iProtectu.ie where employees can self access using our DSE module. This platform is cost effective , 1-10 employee access is approximately €150 pm for the full access to all modules.
