Health & Safety - Do I need a DSE Assessment?

All staff should complete the on-line DSE risk assessment once their new PlymDesk6 equipment is set-up.
 

Users of Display Screen Equipment should complete the on-line risk assessment checklist at

http://staff.plymouth.ac.uk//intrsafe/dse5/intranet.htm

when:

-      Receiving a new computer/laptop and/or screen

-      A change occurs in the work environment such as moving to a different office and/or desk

The local Safety Co-ordinator will have access to completed checklists in their area of responsibility but it will be up to local budget holder to action where necessary.  The local Safety Co-ordinator is responsible for sending summary DSE reports to the appropriate budget holder.
