This is a Worked Example of the Display Screen Equipment Risk Assessment
Form. It is based on several real life settings so some will be relevant to
you and others may not. It is intended to show you the type of things you
will need to look for when doing your own assessment.
As this worked example has been compiled from several sources, the hazards
and controls may not all apply to you or your situation. The best way to
use this worked example form is to compare what we have shown you with your
own workstations and work environment and then use the Guidance Notes to
complete the Display Screen Equipment Risk Assessment Form template
available in this sub-folder.
The Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Risk Assessment Form has been updated to
reflect the changes in IT equipment over the past few years.
As an employer you must carry out a risk assessment of the desk or
workstation of each of your employees. This assessment needs to look at the
IT equipment each individual is using, but also the environment in which
they are working. The way people work has changed and many workers now use
laptops or tablets instead of desktop PCs with bulky monitors. So your DSE
assessment needs to take this into account.
