COVID-19 Remote DSE Assessments
The purpose of the Remote DSE Assessments, like any, is to assess the current ergonomic layout of the workstation and its compliance with the 2007 General Application Regulations to ensure that the user is adequately protected and comfortable at work which we ensure by our quality and professional approach.
Under Irish health and safety legislation, the employer is has a legal responsibility to protect the health and safety of all workers and that includes home workers. By carrying out a home worker’s risk assessment, employers will be able to identify and then deal with, any health and safety risks as far as is “reasonably practicable”.
A remote risk assessment must assess the suitability of space. There should be enough space for work to be carried out comfortably. Often spaces used for homework such as attic rooms or basements, are not suitable because of poor lighting or inadequate ventilation so an assessment should also include ventilation, lighting and temperature. Assessing the workspace should also include removing trip hazards such as trailing leads.
Our team can assist you with performing full remote DSE Assessments for all of your staff working remotely. We have created a full home DSE Assessment for this purpose, and we would be happy to help you ensure compliance with all regulations regarding Home DSE.
