Display Screen Equipment Assessments

Visual Display Unit (VDU) or Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessments are required under the 2007 General Application Regulations. They must be undertaken on all computer workstations where an employee spends 1 hour or more per day on average or are habitual users of VDU/DSE equipment.

The purpose is to assess the ergonomic suitability of the workstation, work equipment and surrounding environment and its compliance with the 2007 General Application Regulations. Incorrect VDU/DSE layout can cause various problems including musculoskeletal disorders, repetitive strain injury, visual fatigue and increased stress levels, amongst others.

Self-assessments, including those conducted using free or purchased software, are not sufficient and assessments should be conducted by a competent third party. Also, assessments should be based on the user at their workstation and if there are changes to either, then the assessment should be repeated.

Dunreidy Engineering Limited employed the services of Asgard Management Solutions in 2016 to assist our company in achieving ISO9001:2015 certification. Throughout the process, Darren and the team conducted themselves in a vey thorough, professional manner. Their policy of regular internal meetings ensured that Dunreidy were to the forefront in achieving certification without causing disruption to productivity. We have no hesitation in recommending Darren and the team to potential clients of theirs and we would very much like the opportunity to work with them in the near future.
