Protect Limited can help you to prevent trips, falls and other accidents in the workplace.
We can also help you to avoid repetitive strain injuries amongst your employees.
We can assist you by conducting general workplace risk assessments, display screen equipment (DSE) risk assessments, by creating site induction presentations, policy documents and log books, and by providing suitable training for your staff.
Potential risks from inappropriate use of DSE:
- Back injuries
- Repetitive strain injury
- Headaches
Under the Health and Safety at Work Act, 1974, all businesses have a responsibility to assess risks and ensure a safe working environment for their employees. Employers with five or more employees must have a written health and safety policy statement in place.
Checks should be conducted on display screen equipment workstations to ensure that;
+ Chairs are suitably adjusted for each user, with effective lumber support
+ Desks are set to an appropriate height
+ Screens are positioned at a comfortable viewing angle and are free from glare
+ Foot rests are used if required, to avoid excessive pressure on legs
+ Frequently used items such as telephones are positioned within easy reach to avoid stretching
+ Users take regular breaks from display screen equipment activites
+ Wrist supports are used if required, to prevent repetitive strain injuries
