The human body is built to move – so is it any wonder that equipment that effectively restricts movement causes pain and discomfort? Employees who work with screens/keyboards and especially laptops for a substantial part of their work must have safety assessments of their work arrangements to avoid pain/injury associated with extended periods of poor posture etc. Employers must also have a system of offering eye & eyesight tests and contributing to spectacles in certain circumstances.

SWSM can help by

  • reviewing your systems for managing work with DSE
  • providing relevant employees with guidance and a self-assessment tool
  • addressing any concerns raised by the assessments.
