VDU Assessments


What is VDU assessment:

Our consultant will visit your premises to examine the use of all visual display units and display screen equipment (DSE) workstations. As with other equipment, overuse or incorrect use will almost certainly lead to difficulties for operators.

Legal requirements:

Chapter 5, Part 2 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations, 2007 states that employers must ensure that the general use of workspace equipment is not a source of risk for the employee.
This act also goes on to state that an employer must perform an analysis of the workstation in order to evaluate the safety and health conditions to which it gives rise for the employees, particularly as regards possible risks to eyesight, physical problems and problems of mental stress, and, on the basis of that evaluation, take appropriate measures to remedy any risks found.
