    At Prorehab Physio we assess an individual’s workstation to ensure that it is optimally arranged to provide best levels of comfort and productivity for the employee.We assess all aspects of the workstation including the chair dimensions, chair mechanisms, sitting posture, desk dimensions, desk layout, desk surface height, desk depth, arm rest position, screen depth, screen angle and screen height. Simple modifications, advice and education are provided to the employee at the time of assessment.

    Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Workstation Risk Assessments are required to meet the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) Display Screen Equipment Regulations 1992/2002. A basic tick list is sometimes provided for employees to complete themselves, however, there are inherent problems with this. Often employees will simply tick all boxes as they rush through the form in their lunch break and continue to experience pain in the back, neck or wrists. Sometimes unguided action is made by employers which can make symptoms worse.

    It is useful for :Any employee whether they are experiencing symptoms or not as identification of poor set-up and posture at an early stage can prevent the onset of problems.

    The assessment will help the employer decide:

    The written report will provide a recommendations and indicate if greater intervention is needed e.g. provision of a new chair , mouse etc. It is up to the employer to then decide what adjustment is deemed reasonable.

    Job Demand Analysis

    The focus of this assessment is on the working environment to ensure that it is adequately arranged to fit the majority of users and reduce the risk of staff developing musculoskeletal disorders. This assessment allows implementation of reasonable adjustments under the Equality Act 2010 and will provide solutions to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury amongst the workforce thereby reducing the incidence of work-related injury absence. This assessment is suitable for:

  • Assessing one or more specific tasks within a job role to identify risk factors that may contribute to musculoskeletal injury in the workforce.
  • Assisting workstation design/redesign to ensure that it is suitable for the majority of users using statistical analysis to calculate the workstation dimensions.
  • Identifying what job role is suitable for an injured employee to perform whilst they are recovering from injury in conjunction with the Work Capability Assessment
