Problem to solve
The Company had a need (and legal requirement under the Display Screen Equipment regulations 1992) to carry out and review DSE assessments (Display Screen Equipment) for their employees and follow up on any concerns which may result in health-related concerns. For the health related concerns the Chippenham based company wanted to ensure they partnered with an occupational health provider as they did not have the expertise in-house.
Safewell developed a one day DSE Assessor training course which was delivered at the customer site to the HR and Office based Line Managers which allowed them to organise a self-assessment questionnaire and then carry out their own in-house review before having to engage any external occupational health. Now only those DSE assessments that highlight health related concerns for employees are reviewed with Safewell’s occupational health team. This has resulted in a considerable cost saving and efficient use of external survives.
